Section 4: Recreational and Cultural Interest Area Signs (White on Brown)

Anchor: #i1003614


Recreational and cultural interests are attractions or traffic generators that are open to the general public for the purpose of play, amusement, or relaxation. Where recreational and cultural-interest areas are a significant destination on a numbered highway route, special signs may be posted for such areas (see Figure 3-14 for example). These signs may be used on freeways where there is direct access to these areas.

Design and Application

White-on-brown Supplemental guide signs may be used to direct users to recreational or cultural interest areas.

When a recreational or cultural interest destination is paired with a city or street destination the sign shall be white on green.

Letter style and minimum letter-numeral sizes should be consistent with standard white-on-green Advance Guide, Exit Direction, and supplemental signs.

The background color of the Interchange Exit Number panel must match the background color of the guide sign. A brown panel should not be included within the border of a green or blue sign.

All Exit Gore signs must remain white on green.
