funny and original....
Seriously, do you know?Â Â :-
Federal dollars fund all the signs on the Interstate. FDOT gets so much allowance and budget for I 75 from the fed govt and then the state funds the rest. But the funding of this copuld have been anybody and don't put it past some alumni to have purchased the sign. Monies could have come from anyone or entity but the FDOT has to approve the sign. Doesn't actually tell you who paid for it. But interstates' funds are always a mixture of federal dollars, state dollars, or private funds. Tood bad they have to pull it down and add the latest one. They should have just made a sign where you could have all the champs mentioned and leave room for the new ones to be added.
The sign is just past the rest area and just south of the newberry exit i believe-- i'll have to [ay more attention next time I go up there.
