Gateway Monuments

Introduction

A gateway monument is a freestanding structure or sign, non integral or non required highway feature, constructed within the State right-of-way, which communicates the name of the city, county, or incorporated town. Gateway monuments are planned, designed, funded, constructed and maintained by the public agency sponsoring the project.
