Corporate Limit Boundary Sign!

Usually the corporate limit boundary signs are very boring. They are either simple green-and-white or white-and-black rectangular signs that just don't quite announce that you're entering a city or c crossing into another county. They can very easily be missed. Here is an example, which is about as plain as it can get:

A boring sign in a dreary landscape! (Sorry, Californians.)

Now here is my idea for the several States' corporate limit boundary signs. I have redesigned Massachusetts'  version from white-and-black to green-and-white (The grey is sky, of course.) Basically the redesign keepis the commonwealth-designed present shape and layout, with the participle "ENTERING" bannered in an arc. The rest of the sign possesses the state seal and the city or town's name and date of establishment, just like at present. Other states can have similar signs, with different shapes and data, of course.

Well the original The Great International Highway Makeover webpage is no longer with us; it was a webpage of RV Droz's US-Highways.com website, which has since been taken down.

If any of the contributors to the old TGIHMO wishes to have their Route Marker Designs up on the internet again, please let me know in the comments section or by emailing me at: ed_miessner@yahoo.com, and please use the banner, "Route Marker Design". (Otherwise I night delete it as junk email, which I get a lot of.)

New New Mexico Route Marker!

No, it's not for real (yet) but it's my latest design for route markers we'd like to see in that state.

The size of the sign is 36" wide by 30" high with 12" high numerals and a 9" high/wide Zuni.
