Who is responsible for removing the N.C. DOT signs advertising Orton Plantation and when are they going to be removed? Will this cost taxpayers any money?

Apparently the new owner of Orton Plantation will have to foot the bill.

“The Department has not been asked to remove the Orton Plantation signs to date. If the signs were removed, then it would cost for labor and equipment to remove them,” said Jerry Higgins of the N.C. Department of Transportation.

Billionaire hedge fund trader and Raleigh native Louis Moore Bacon purchased the 5,000-acre property in May. Bacon is a descendant of the family that built the Brunswick County plantation.
