WYTHEVILLE, Va. – Located at intersections throughout Wythe County are brown and green signs showing the E-911 road name. These signs are critically important for emergency services, law enforcement and even package deliveries.

Unfortunately, signs are sometimes knocked down, damaged or stolen. Wythe County is embarking on a Road Sign Awareness Project to identify and replace missing E-911 road signs.

Starting October 30, the 911 Road Sign Awareness Project will be open until November 14.

“We appreciate any help that residents can provide with this project,” Public Information Officer Blake Stowers said. “E-911 signs are a vital part of our emergency services program.”

While residents can call in missing signs at any time, our goal is to identify as many as possible during this two week project.

If you know of a missing E-911 sign please provide the location and road name(s) to the Wythe County Emergency Services Coordinator, Curtis Crawford at 276-223-4521 or emergency.coordinator@wytheco.org.

Please be aware that missing stop signs, yield signs or road hazard signs should be reported to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). Please reach out to VDOT at 1-800-FOR-ROAD (1-800-367-7623).


Officials ask for your patience with this project. Signs will be ordered immediately, but it will take several weeks for signs to be fabricated, shipped and then installed.
