Lancaster County Council’s idea to set up its own sign-making shop is a good one. The county is going to have to replace road name signs and traffic signs in the county within the next few years to comply with a federal mandate.
The new signs must have more reflective features, which are meant to increase highway safety.
The mandate requires all regulatory signs, such as stop, yield and speed limit signs, be updated in the county by January 2015.
The county must replace all of its road name signs by January 2018.
