SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The first of three new welcome signs was unveiled during a ceremony Friday afternoon.

Metal signs are being replaced by masonry signage.  Two more signs will be installed on Abercorn Street at the Forest River Bridge and on Oglethorpe Avenue east of the Talmadge Bridge.

The first new sign went up at the 37th Street ramp off on Interstate 16 and Ogeechee Road.

"We have so many gateways. We have over 17 entry points. We really wanted to focus on places where people are able to come into the city and see wonderful parts of our city. Our residents have been asking for this and we are happy to oblige," said Van Johnson, Mayor Pro Tem.

Savannah Mayor Edna B. Jackson, Acting City Manager Stephanie Cutter and City Councilmembers participated in the ceremony.
