County commissioners voted Monday to install the signs. County Engineer Bill Bridges said the roadway was one recently completed as part of the ATRIP program.

“We noticed after it was completed that there wasn’t a sign up, and one needs to be,” Bridges said. “It’s a residential type roadway, and for that reason, it needs to be up.”

Bridges also gave an ATRIP update, stating that work on Wood Road and Robinsonville Road will soon be completed and that crews will then move to Wolf Log Road and then Pea Ridge Road.

In other business, the commission:

• gave preliminary approval to Bell Creek Subdivision;

• appointed Barbara Harris to the Escambia County Cooperative Library System;

• adopted participation in the Community Development Block Development Grant citizen participation plan. This will allow the county to comply with grant regulations.
