Tipton County has been awarded $156,721 by the Indiana Department of Transportation for the replacement of signs on various county roads.
The money was part of $19.2 million in federal transportation funds awarded by INDOT to east central Indiana counties, which includes money for road construction, bridges and bicycle and pedestrian projects.
County Engineer Phil Beer said some signs already have been identified and will be replaced during the next couple of years.
Many of the signs that will be replaced are identified as having a low level of reflectivity, Beer said.
“If the signs don’t shine a proper amount off of car lights or reflect a certain amount, they are eligible for replacement,” he said. “That also goes for signs that have been damaged by things like farm equipment, traffic accidents or vandalism.”
