The City of Minneapolis is working to replace snow emergency signs around the city.

According to the city, some of the 5,500 signs are close to 15-years-old.

Crews are installing new signs that display the snow emergency hotline, and are made out of a material that lasts longer.

The signs cost about $7 each. It will cost the city about $40,000 to replace the signs over the next couple of years.
