DOT Scales Back Roadsign Deadline

Eliminating 46 Regulations

The U.S. Department of Transportation on Thursday, May, 10, announced the elimination of 46 regulations on traffic signs to provide more flexibility for state and local governments, including allowing communities to replace traffic signs when they are worn out rather than requiring signs to be replaced by a specific date.

Some of these burdensome deadlines would have cost communities millions of dollars at a time when they can’t afford that, said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. We spoke to state and local officials across the country, and we heard them loud and clear.
