Lead Accepts New Highway and Street Signs Offered Through State Program

Lead will soon have new highway and street signs thanks to a program administered through the South Dakota Department of Transportation, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. While the Lead City Commission initially declined the offer, after learning more about the scope of the project, the Commission decided to accept.

The state-run program, which is funded the federal government, will replace outdated highway and street signs in order to increase safety in the community. The state offers the sign replacement in various counties each year. In Lawrence County, signs could be replaced in the communities of Central City, Deadwood, Lead, St. Onge and Whitewood.

After an assessment of current signs, those in poor condition as well as those that have reached their 18-year-lifespan will be replaced with new signs. A majority of the replacement work is slated to take place in 2019.
