New Highway Signs Unveiled to Welcome Visitors to Indiana
Soon, visitors will be greeted by new "Welcome to Indiana" signs along the highways.
If you have ever traveled along the highways entering Indiana, you've most likely seen that same blue "Welcome to Indiana" sign that says "Lincoln's Boyhood Home." It has been around for years. Traveling out of state to visit family, that sign always let me know, especially as a kid, that we were almost home.
Yesterday, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, unveiled the new signage that will be displayed along highways throughout the state to welcome visitors into Indiana. The signage was revealed at the Indianapolis Motorspeedway. One of the biggest changes to these signs is that no longer will the "Welcome to Indiana" signs feature the iconic slogan "The Crossroads of America," instead, they will feature a new slogan of "More to Discover."
According to IN.gov:
"These initiatives showcase the state's commitment to tourism and economic growth, highlighting the importance of providing an enhanced travel experience for our visitors," said IDDC Secretary and CEO Elaine Bedel. "We are thrilled to extend the reach of the IN Indiana campaign throughout the entire state. Tourists and residents will have a warm Indiana welcome whenever they cross our state borders."
When Will We Start Seeing These Signs on Highways?
INDOT says that they will install 19 interstate signs reading "More to Discover IN Indiana" by May 26, throughout the state. By the end of June, INDOT will install 57 more entry signs along non-interstate routes.
