Controversial “I Love NY” Highway Signs Cost More Than Expected

It has been reported that the controversial “I Love NY” highway signs that are seen all across the state cost around $8.1 million dollars to print and install. The cost of constructing the 514 signs was originally projected at $1.76 million dollars, but ended up costing around $3.6 million to build and $4.5 million to install. The signs have sparked controversy after the state was warned the signs violate strict federal laws that dictate what can and cannot be displayed on highway signs. The signs are meant to promote New York tourism, but the Federal Highway Administration says the signs are distracting to drivers. (Source: LoHud)
