Area drivers are still seeing Wild West World touted by six brown traffic signs that cost the state about $18,000. "Right now, the thought is we’re going to leave them up," Lee Holmes, state traffic signing engineer, told The Eagle editorial board, adding hopefully that the bankrupt theme park could be sold and reopened. The Kansas Department of Transportation budgeted money for the signs based on state travel and tourism officials’ approval, he said. Asked about other instances of obsolete KDOT signage, he recalled the Kansas International Museum debacle in Topeka. "The intention is to not have that happen," he said.
