You paid $8 million for those 500-plus non-compliant New York state highway tourism signs, and now you are paying to finally have them taken down.

The signs started coming down Wednesday, just one day after Election Day.

The state long knew the feds had deemed the signs illegal, but kept spending your money to put them up anyway.

A state official says the signs will be re-located to places like service areas and welcome centers. The large motherboards will stay up. It’s the four follow-up signs that are being taken down.
