Va. picks new design for welcome signs

Earlier this month the Virginia Department of Transportation announced that a new welcome sign design had been selected. Out of over 56,400 votes a white design with a cardinal perched on a dogwood branch took 31.5% of the vote.

Unlike many states that post new welcome signs every time a new governor takes office, Virginia has been using the current design (with some modifications) for nearly fifty years. They also do not have the name of the governor on the sign.

The new signs are expected to be posted starting April 22, 2006.
