Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):


    
    The DOH estimates that the project will require approximately 50 signs per county at a cost of $225 per sign. Upon completion of the initial installation, we estimate the total cost to be approximately $620,000 (2750 Signs X $225 ea).
    
    The DOH estimates that we have already installed approximately 800 florescent lime green signs. With an average replacement of approximately 400 signs per year, the annual cost is estimated at $90,000 (400 Signs X $225).
