North Dakota DOT Starts Installing New Welcome Signs

The North Dakota Department of Transportation is starting a more than year-long process of installing newly-redesigned “welcome signs” across the state.

The agency said the new signs feature a new state logo and includes the first photo background used on a North Dakota welcome sign. The North Dakota DOT added that it plans to have the new signs in place at all entry points on state highways by the fall of 2021.

“We are very proud of our state and these welcome signs are part of the first impression for visitors to North Dakota,” said Bill Panos, North Dakota DOT director, in a statement. “The signs will provide a fresh new look for travelers and better represent the spirit of North Dakota.”

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation kicked off a similar statewide sign-replacement effort in February also following the unveiling of a new state logo.

The Oklahoma DOT installed new roadside “welcome signs” at 10 major entry points along state highways and interstates, along with 75 smaller signs in other border areas.
