Graffiti to highway signs in KCK will add $20,000 to taxpayers tab
Graffiti vandalism to overhead highway signs on Intestate 35 will cost taxpayers about $20,000.
The signs, located along southbound I-35 between Southwest Boulevard and Seventh Street Trafficway, have been tagged in recent months and then again on Thursday night, according to a release from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
Because of the extensive damage done on Thursday, two signs will have to be replaced at an estimated cost of $20,000. New signs will be ordered but won’t be installed until early summer.
A nearby sign that has been tagged will be repaired by crews who will place matching yellow tape over the graffiti.
