A system is not currently in place to inventory traffic signs in Kentucky. A sign inventory database would be beneficial for those responsible for maintenance and management of signs. The overall safety provided the driving public could benefit from an efficient inventory system that increases an agency’s knowledge of existing signs. In addition, a comprehensive inventory and mechanisms for updating the inventory could reduce the potential for liability associated with outdated, inappropriately placed, or missing signs. Software is available for this kind of inventory; however it can be expensive and would lack the specific features that could be developed in-house. It is intended that the system will serve as the model for expansion to a statewide inventory and management system for signs. This system will permit the Transportation Cabinet to track and monitor the number, location, and condition of signs that fall under their responsibility as part of the state-maintained roadways. This document will serve as a user’s manual for the sign inventory software entitled, Sign Click.
