The first new highway signs directing travelers to South Carolina's rural attractions or working farms will be installed by month's end.
The signs are similar to those that direct visitors to services off the interstates. But these signs have the state Parks, Recreation and Tourism or the Certified South Carolina Grown agriculture logos.
The first signs will point the way to Cottle Farm Strawberries in Columbia, Fire Fly Distillery and Irvin House Vineyard on Wadmalaw Island and Bee City Zoo in Cottageville in Colleton County.
The signs are designed to make it easier for the visitors to find tourist and agricultural attractions along the back roads of the state.
Eighteen other signs have also been approved and should be in place by the end of the year.
