Linda Ritter, a spokeswoman for the Arizona Department of Transportation, said the project would take about 30 private-sector workers a year. She said ADOT had considered replacement a priority because of safety and hazard issues.

ADOT had plans to replace them to comply with new sign requirements to meet minimum reflectivity standards for night driving, when the signs are illuminated only by vehicles' headlights, Ritter said.
When federal economic stimulus funds became available, the I-19 signs were among 41 projects that the state Transportation Board approved, she said.
Ritter added that some drivers complained when the signs first went up of being confused by use of metric designations.

Ritter said the governor asked her staff and ADOT to study the impact and options further, and the department has suggested posting new signs with both kilometers and miles for a few years - something that Green, for one, questions.

"We realized that if we had something that was angled and jutted out, then that would prevent taggers from bending over and being able to spray the sign," said Linda Ritter, ADOT's senior community relations manager.
ADOT already uses anti-graffiti film but that has to be reapplied due to wear and tear. Some signs with too much graffiti have to be taken down and replaced altogether, which requires crews to shut down roads - a move ADOT says costs more than $5,000 each time.
ADOT makes the guards in-house, which costs $2,000 for installation and an additional $50 per square foot of shield. Ritter said the guards are cost-efficient, make neighborhoods more aesthetically pleasing and, most importantly, protect drivers.
"When drivers can't see a sign well, that's an issue," Ritter said.

"Our revenue depends on gas taxes and revenue sales," says Linda Ritter, Spokesperson for ADOT.
Ritter says because the state hasn't brought in enough gas tax dollars, federal funding has gone away. The department now has to consider closing 12 MVD's statewide. 24 vacancies still haven't been filled at the MVD on broadmont. On top of possibly closing business, ADOT has to defer construction projects.
"The deferral of these construction projects means that the construction will not occur for some time," says Ritter.
Then starting next weekend, ADOT will close 13 rest areas along the highway. The Canoa rest area just south of Tucson is one of them. They're temporary closures, but Ritter says they'll save about two and a half million dollars.

Linda Ritter, Department of Transportation spokeswoman, said her agency conducted two studies about whether to put a crosswalk across the highway at the city's request in 2001 and 2004. Both times the agency decided that a crosswalk was not needed. Ritter said the agency considered various factors, including how often pedestrians cross the highway, how long it takes them to cross it and the speed limit. She said department officials told Tombstone officials that if conditions changed, they could write the agency a letter asking for another study. She said Tombstone hasn't done that since 2004.

The closures are deemed temporary, said Linda Ritter, an Arizona Department of Transportation spokesman, with the state reviewing those closures after the 2009-2010 fiscal year ends in June. Areas selected for closure were chosen based on several factors, Ritter said, including their distance to other facilities such as restrooms and overnight truck stops. The Canoa rest area, Ritter said, is only 10 miles from Green Valley, while the San Simon rest area is just 20 miles west of a rest area in Lordsburg, N.M.
