The Texas Department of Transportation will not be replacing damaged cemetery signs, and will be replacing damaged county road signs with smaller signs.


"As part of a cost-saving initiative, TxDOT will not be replacing cemetery signs that become damaged," said TxDOT spokeswoman Becky Ozuna, "County road signs will still be replaced when damaged, but will be replaced with single, stream-lined versions of existing multiple directional signs."


The cost savings for cemetery signs is estimated at $3 million, Ozuna said. County road signs cost savings is projected at $28.5 million.


When asked if TxDOT has received any feedback from drivers concerned with navigating the roads, Ozuna said the information that will go on the new streamlined version of signs will still be useful for drivers. A street-name-type sign will be placed on stop signs at the intersection.


"We have full confidence that Texans will continue to be able to navigate to their destinations," Ozuna said.
