W.Va. converting road signs to more visible font

CHARLESTON (AP) — West Virginia is working to make signs on interstate and U.S. highway routes more legible and visible.

During regular sign replacements, the Department of Transportation is installing signs that feature a font called Clearview.

DOT spokeswoman Carrie Bly tells the Charleston Daily Mail that the font, in general, is easier to read.

So far, signs with the Clearview font have been installed along Interstate 77 north of Charleston and Interstate 64 in the Huntington area. The DOT began replacing signs along Interstate 70 in the Northern Pandhandle this year. U.S. 50 is up next, followed by Interstate 79.

States must request interim approval from the Federal Highway Administration to use the Clearview font.
