New "Welcome to Montana" Signs

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

Driving into Montana, you are familiar with the "Get Lost" welcome signs. Well on Wednesday, Governor Steve Bullock wants to update and replace the current signs.

The governor says the new signs will greet visitors and welcome Montanans home in a way we can all be proud of.

The Montana Office of Tourism first approached the Department of Transportation about redesigning the signs.

The DOT already planned to redo the signs made in the late 1980's.

They used new high-tech digital printers to make photo-quality signs and also make them long-lasting.

The state will start to replace the signs this spring.
