On Kansas Highway 10, there was a DeSoto exit and Eudora exit sign. They changed them to just street names in those towns, but they don't discern which town the streets are in. For example, the two Eudora exits now just say Church Road and North 1400 Road. Why did they do that?

Marty Matthews, a spokesman for the Kansas Department of Transportation, said the signs were replaced with new ones after the highway was repaved this fall. He said the new signs follow national guidelines set by the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices. The federal government specifies that highway exit signs should indicate a street designation, but there also are supplemental signs that will say, for example, "Eudora next two exits."
