“Preserve America” Signs Will Be Placed Throughout Tuolumne County

Sonora, CA — The Tuolumne County Supervisors have given the Public Works Department the go ahead to install 11 “Preserve America” community road signs at entrances heading into Tuolumne County.

In July of 2008, Tuolumne County was designated a “Preserve America” community by former First Lady Laura Bush. It recognizes communities that protect and celebrate their heritage and use its history for economic and community revitalization.

A benefit of the designation is that the county becomes eligible to receive “Preserve America” grants.

The total cost to purchase the signs is around $5,000 and the funds will be allocated through the Tuolumne County Transportation Council.

The signs will be posted on the O’Byrnes Ferry Rd. bridge, Parrotts Ferry Rd. bridge, J-59, Hwy 108 at Knights Ferry, Hwy 108 along Sonora Pass, Hwy 120 along Tioga Pass, Hwy 120 at Buck Meadows (both east and west), Hwy 49 at the Mariposa County line, Hwy 49 at the Calaveras County line, and Hwy 132 at the Stanislaus County line.

The signs will be 36" x 48".
