1)     WV DOH approved supports to be used.

2)     Supports to be standard depth in ground (normally 3)

3)     Lateral clearance of 6 12 from edge of pavement should be strived for

4)     Vertical clearance of 7 from edge of pavement to bottom of sign should be maintained

Existing supports for existing signs should never be used to mount road name signing
