Shelby County Ordered to Remove Signs from Interstate
Posted: 23-Dec-2004 12:44AM CST

For about 18 hours motorists on I-64 could see that Shelby County claims to be the “American Saddlebred Capital of the World;” however, just 18 hours after the county road department installed the sign the state department of highways ordered the signs removed. Federal officials have established stringent rules governing the types of signs that can be installed along interstates, and the Saddlebred Capital signs ran afoul of those rules.

The signs will remain along other highways, including US 60.
