WYOMING \u2013 How would you like to own a piece of Wyoming history \u2014 without the felony charge, of course?\r\n\r\nThe Wyoming Department of Transportation is holding an online auction for two 4-by-8-foot aluminum \u201cWelcome to Wyoming\u201d signs featuring the Grand Tetons. The signs feature the Tetons as the background image, with the bucking horse and rider and the words \u201cForever West\u201d in the foreground.\r\n\r\n\u201cThese are the last known state line signs to exist from that vintage,\u201d said Joel Meena, state traffic engineer. \u201cThese have the potential to appeal to a collector because they\u2019re unique. Rarely do you see a state line sign that is as colorful and scenic as Wyoming\u2019s. We have led the nation on the look and feel of our state line signs.\u201d\r\n\r\nThose interested in placing a bid will need to do so by August 5. The first sign auction ends at 8:30 am on Aug. 5. The second sign auction ends at 9:30 am on Aug. 5. Staggering the ending times gives people a chance to get their bids in if they missed the first one.\r\n\r\nAnd fear not. Neither of these signs has bullet holes or bird poo on it. Department employees recently discovered the last two signs in storage, so officials decided to hold another auction for those as they did in 2017 for what they thought was the last of a discontinued campaign.\r\n\r\nThe two signs come from the northwest part of the state, are in like-new condition and were never used on the roadside. \u201cThey\u2019re both in excellent condition,\u201d said Jeff Madden, WYDOT warehouse manager.\r\n\r\nWYDOT previously auctioned five 4-by-8-foot signs featuring the Tetons during the summer of 2017. Those signs were posted at different parts of Wyoming at the state line. That auction raised about $33,000.\r\n\r\nThe money raised from this auction will go back into the department\u2019s road improvement fund, just like it did for the 2017 auction.
