Imagine looking down a hole that is 6′ wide and 40′ deep…. That’s what it takes to hold these massive signs up! The I-29/Summit Exit sign is 80′ to the top and the Hot Springs sign is 70′ to the top. One of the perks to building a sign that high is that you can literally see it from miles away. According to the South Dakota DOT traffic map from 2015, over 10,000 cars & trucks drive by these signs each day. It’s a great way to capture the attention of drivers and alert them of an opportunity to stop for gas, food, or simply take a break. Bill Ortmeier, Sales, led the coordination of this project with the owners of the Coffee Cup locations. Jeremy Van Zee cooridinated the installations and helped lead the way. Skyline Signs out of Rapid City also helped with the installation in Hot Springs.
From Chris Heinz of Coffee Cup:
“We had been working with Stein Sign for many years, so when it came time to put up the high-rise at the Coffee Cup in Summit we had complete confidence in them. As it turned out, our confidence in them was warranted as the project went as planned and the sign turned out perfectly. It was a pleasure working with Bill and Jeremy before, during and after the installation of the sign. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stein Sign for any sign project, large or small.”
