If the second replacement sign is damaged, destroyed, stolen, or removed from its foundation by an act of vandalism, the department will remove the sign from the premises if still present, and no further sign will be erected.
(6) Two (2) signs will be erected for each adopter, one at each end of the adopted section, at a location determined by the department.
