North Carolina is well known for its college sports teams. To recognize colleges and universities that win a national championship, the N.C. Board of Transportation has approved a program that allows signage listing the school and team to be installed along NC DOT roadways.
The first signs to be installed will honor the University of North Carolina’s 2017 men’s basketball team.
Drivers will start seeing the signs next year along:
- I-77; and
Schools will pay for the signs and the requests must first be approved by the Board of Transportation.
