Wisconsin's harsh winter did plenty of damage to roads, and it also left its mark on road signs across the state.
Now that spring is here, state and country highway crews are on the look out for the casualties of winter driving. DOT signing engineer Matt Rauch says there are a lot more signs than usual that have been damaged or knocked down by snowplows or sliding vehicles.
Mile marker and stop signs were among some of the most commonly damaged. However, Rauch says even the green information signs along highways were hit by vehicles.
Crews have been working around the state to repair the damage or repair signs. Much of the damage was clear until recently though, after leftover snow melted. Rauch says repairs to signs related to highway safety are being made a priority.
