Why are Alberta's highway signs changing?

Visitors to our province want to find and enjoy our fabulous attractions and friendly services easily. The new signs provide easier to read messages and, more importantly, meet standards common to North America. In today’s fast-paced world, highway safety is always a concern. The new signs will help to reduce roadside clutter and visual pollution as well as provide safe and effective ways for travellers to get to where they are going.
To ensure that tourism related highway signs are of maximum value to motorists, they include, where appropriate, an indication of distance from the highway to the business location.
