The signs will replace and be installed on the same posts as the existing “Fines Double In Construction Zones, Road Workers Give ‘Em A Brake” signs currently located along state highways in Iowa.



These new signs, which are produced in two different sizes, depending on the location where they are posted, have been manufactured at the DOT’s sign shop in Ames.
