GREENSBORO, NC (AP) -- The state Transportation Department is testing eight electronic signs on interstates in Greensboro to make sure they work correctly. The News & Record of Greensboro reports that DOT is testing the signs for 30 days on interstate 40, 85 and 40/85. Starting Monday, the new signs repeated the same wording: "Call 511 for general travel info." The number refers to state DOT's mobile-phone network for travel updates. The $875,000 project replaces seven existing electronic boards with larger, more technologically advanced signs near seven major interchanges and an eighth message board in a new location - on I-40 West. The major benefit of the new message boards is a larger surface so DOT officials can convey longer messages that are easier for motorists to understand. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press.
