The county's re-striping project for several of its Mississippi Office of State Aid Road Construction designated roads is nearing completion?
District 2 Clay County Supervisor Luke Lummus said that part of the striping project involved putting out new road signs, such as stop and yield signs, which had led to temporary double signage in some areas.
"They put up a new sign regardless of the condition of the old sign," Lummus said. "When they get all the new signs up, then they'll go in and take down the old ones."
He said many citizens had expressed concerns over the double signs, as well as the replacement of still-usable signs.
"That's the state replacing the signs, not the county," Lummus said. "When they take the old signs down they give them to the county so we can re-use them. It actually winds up saving us money.
