#MIHistory – Feb. 6: Sign of the Times

On Feb. 6, 1924, the state highway department placed the first 10,000 metal signs along Michigan highways that notified drivers for the first time of railroad crossings, route markers, mileposts and danger points. These days, the Michigan Department of Transportation also keeps motorists informed of traffic, construction and weather-related delays at https://mdotnetpublic.state.mi.us/drive/.
