2019-09-16: Address Sign Placement in Marathon County
Marathon County CPZ
As the Uniform Addressing project enters the final phase of installation there have been some questions from Marathon County residents regarding the placement of the blue address signs. It is advised that the address sign is not moved from the installed location. This location was chosen so the sign is visible from the road in both directions and it allows emergency vehicles to quickly identify the address from a distance.
The sign should be on the left side of the driveway approximately 10 feet from the edge of the road and 6-8 feet from the edge of the driveway. Installation crews have discretion to move the sign to the right side of the driveway if there are any obstructions or utilities in the way.
