Expanded Description:

Alberta Tourism, Parks, Recreation and Culture Signs

This government department administers approximately 140 roadside historical point-of-interest signs. The program was originally implemented in the 1950s. The vast majority of the signs are culturally historic in their content. There are also signs addressing natural history. In 1995 the Department, in co-operation with the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation, undertook a program to replace the existing signs, many of which displayed varying levels of distress. In addition, the signs represented a series of five different construction styles that had been used over the years. The overall effect fell short of the unified visual approach that was originally intended.

At present there 57 signs that have been installed since the original five test signs that were installed in 1995/96. The intent of the new program is to replace all of the original 140 signs. In some instances, it will not be possible to replace signs in their original locations due to upgraded Department of Transportation requirements for turnouts. In such cases the signs are either relocated or in rare cases dropped from the inventory.
