NYDOT, FHWA Officials to Huddle on Taking Down 500 Tourism Signs

Newsday reports, “Federal Highway Administrator Gregory Nadeau will meet with New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner Matt Driscoll next month to discuss a plan for taking down the more than 500 ‘I Love NY’ tourism signs erected throughout the state, a spokesman for the federal agency said [on November 28].” An FHWA spokesman tells the newspaper “the signs do not conform to federal standards for such roadway signs and they are also unsafe because they contain so much information that they are distracting drivers.”
