A sign at the entrance to Auburn, Oregon has been temporarily shut down after an investigation by the Oregon Highway Patrol.
The Oregon Highway Police say the sign was removed by a resident on Friday afternoon.
The sign was installed in November 2015, and was used by Oregon residents for the last two years to allow drivers to exit the state at the Auburn exit.
According to the Highway Patrol, a resident who noticed the sign had complained to the officer, who sent out a notice to the local newspaper.
The letter said, “It is unlawful to remove the Auburn Exit Sign.
You may not remove it.”
The Oregon Department of Transportation says that since its installation in 2015, the Auburn highway exit has been used by drivers to travel between Auburn and OHSU.
The highway exit was installed with the assistance of the Auburn and Eugene police departments, and the Oregon Department also had a liaison with Auburn police to monitor traffic at the exit.
The Highway Patrol has not provided any information about the cause of the closure, but Oregon Highway spokesman Tim Gorman says the sign is in the process of being repaired.
