Expensive price tag to replace interstate signs

JACKSON, MS (WLBT)-  Nine-thousand dollars is the price tag for the state to replace three signs on I-55 covered in graffiti.

As WLBT first told you earlier this month, the signs will be replaced sometime in the spring. They are located in Jackson on the Riverside Drive bridge for the Lakeland Drive exit and at the Northside Drive exit.

The phrases "live in this moment" and "this is the path we take" are painted in big black letters. Mississippi Department of Transportation officials believe the graffiti happened overnight because traffic cameras did not capture footage of the culprit.
