UPDATE: We have been allowed to keep our larger signs where they are until we get this straightened out. We do have to move our small open sign and banners back farther away from the hwy.
Beginning Monday June 17th, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, after 10 years, will no longer honor the agreement we have with them to have our business signs out by the highway and visible to oncoming traffic. They are forcing us to move all Red Cedar Mercantile Antiques signage back 200 feet from the highway. Our signs will no longer be visible from HWY 8 unless you look directly down our driveway. This includes our Antiques Ahead signs, our business sign, open signs, and all banners. We know this will negatively affect our business, but we are NOT closing. The DOT is reviewing our circumstance and hopefully we can arrive at a suitable conclusion that both parties can agree upon.
