Signing Responsibilities


According to the Illinois Department of Transportation’s Signing of Road District and Township Highways manual: “All traffic signs should be kept in proper position, clean, legible, and should have adequate reflectivity at all times.  Damaged or deteriorated signs should be replaced without delay.”

TOIRMA recommends that highway commissioners regularly inspect signs along their highways, and not only address any issues that may be present, but document the findings and action taken.  This can easily be done by using TOIRMA’s Highway Commissioners Diary.”  This publication is available at no cost to all TOIRMA members.  Please contact Debbie Prentice (217) 444-1204,, and she will be happy to send you a diary.  Form more...
