County Road Memorial Marker Program

County Road Memorial Marker Program

In order to control activities within the right-of-way and increase public awareness in regards to highway safety, the Public Works Department has established the Memorial Marker Program to commemorate those who have died as a result of a vehicle related accident on the County Road System.

Each request will be evaluated by county staff in a timely manner and the requestor will be contacted with the results of the evaluation and given a timeline for the installation of a Memorial Marker for their loved one.

The markers will consist of a round 15" diameter aluminum sign panel with white background and black letters mounted to a 5 ft. steel u-channel post. All markers are uniformly inscribed "Drive Safely, In Memory" followed by the deceased's name. They are manufactured at the County sign shop at no cost to the requestor for the construction, installation and maintenance of the markers. They will be allowed to remain on the right-of-way for a minimum of one (1) year, but the Department will reserve the right to have them removed due to construction or other maintenance needs.
