JEFFERSON CITY - In honor of Veterans Day on Nov. 11, the electronic message boards along state interstates will carry messages recognizing those who have served our country in the armed forces.
The signs, located throughout the state on Interstates 70, 44, 55, 29 and 35 and on U.S. Route 60, will include a message that says, "Missouri Supports Our Veterans - Drive Safely."
"We want people to take a minute to think about the sacrifices our veterans have made for us," said Missouri Department of Transportation Director Pete Rahn.
When the electronic boards are not conveying information about travel times, traffic accidents, road conditions or work zones, MoDOT uses them to provide highway safety messages.
