Heck, Oregon has replaced a number of overhead signs with video panels.
When not displaying incidental information, they show the original sign
they replaced, though with some added flair. Last time I was up in Oregon,
on OR 217 a number of speed limit signs had been replaced with video
displays showing a speed limit and advised speed, and signs displaying
distance to next exit were replaced with video displays that were cycling
the miles distance display to also show kilometers (or meters for distances
of 1500m or less) and average travel times.
I think we're seeing the future with this, and the future is boring.
