Savannah is putting up bigger road signs to welcome visitors rolling into the Hostess City of the South.

Mayor Edna Jackson and City Council members planned to unveil the first of three new welcome signs Friday afternoon. The new signs are made of masonry and will replace the old metal signs that now greet motorists entering Georgia's oldest city.

The three signs are being placed at the three main roadways into Savannah. Two will greet visitors using Interstate 16 and the Talmadge Bridge spanning the Savannah River to come into the city near the downtown historic district. The third will be placed at the Forest River Bridge for those entering Savannah's suburban south side from Interstate 95.
