Sign blitz slated for Friday in New Albany





The New Albany Street Department will hold its third sign blitz under Mayor Jeff Gahan’s administration Friday. 

Signs and advertisements illegally placed in public rights of way and on telephone polls will be removed during the blitz. The collected signs will be stored at the street department for 30 days, after which they will be destroyed if not claimed. 

“We just want to do our part to ensure that New Albany is an attractive place for its residents and visitors,” stated Street Department Commissioner Mickey Thompson in a news release. 

According to the city, the last two sign blitzes led to the removal of 150 signs from public rights of way.



The reconfiguration of the eastern entrance to New Albany from Clark County could be finished by Saturday, which would mean the project would wrap up a week ahead of schedule. 

When TSI Paving was awarded the project in February, the goal was to have the gateway makeover completed by the Kentucky Derby, which takes place May 6. 

The project includes new medians, signage and the extension of curbs along Spring Street. The board of works approved a $26,000 change order for the project Tuesday, as the additional funding will foot the removal of another median and more demolition work. 

TSI’s low bid for the project was $174,994.
