Site Indentification - Entrance Sign
Unlike the other standard road signs, this sign is not located within the public road right of way. The Site Identification sign is used at the entrance to a historic site, segment, or interpretive facility, so that the public knows when they have arrived at a place on the national historic trail. These signs will be located at the entrance to the property and because each property is unique, these signs are site specific. This sign can be added to an existing sign (see example above). You may wish to use the icon to indicate the need for the site identification - entrance sign in your sign plan; however, each sign will require working directly with the landowner and NTIR office to determine the requirements for this sign.
