Department of Transportation
restricts the placement of state historical markers to numbered state or federal
highways, such as N.C. 49 or U.S. 64. Interstates, restricted access routes, city
maintained streets, and "SR"'s are not eligible. Markers must not be allowed to
create an unreasonable road hazard.
Applicants should specify the distance and direction from the proposed marker location
to the site being marked. The members of the Marker Advisory
, when reviewing a proposal, will consider the feasibility of
placing a marker within a reasonable proximity. Where possible, the marker will
be placed at the site being marked. In other cases, they may direct the reader to
a nearby site.
