Ponder exit sign

The Ponder exit sign, shown Monday, is crumpled over along southbound Interstate 35W. The sign is expected to be repaired and replaced sometime next month, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

The sign is expected to be repaired and replaced sometime in October, Texas Department of Public Transportation spokeswoman Emily McCann says.

Robson Ranch resident Billy Brackeen said the sign has been down for about four months. He said he called TxDOT “at least half a dozen times” to ask when it would be repaired.

McCann said the city of Denton does not have the equipment to repair such a large sign, so TxDOT’s operations department will take over the repair.
