Worth it or wasted? New signs along I-275

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

It can be dangerous for motorist to quickly change lanes on the interstate. That's why Florida's Department of Transportation is painting lanes in a new way to help motorists get where they are going safely.

There are new signs, painted directly on the pavement of Interstate 275, heading toward Interstate 4.

As you approach the interchange, heading east on I-275 North, you'll see the large logos, right on the road. They give motorists plenty of advance warning where the lane will end up -- hopefully preventing dangerous, last-second lane changes.

There are several other spots around the Bay Area with new paint on the road. Each lane costs FDOT about $2,000 and is expected to last six years.

WORTH IT: 83%
WASTED: 17%
