New signs at two Columbus entryways are in place welcoming residents and visitors to the “Hometown of Michael R. Pence, United States Vice President.”

The signs were installed by 11:45 a.m. Friday, just as Pence was sworn in as vice president in Washington D.C. Columbus’ Department of Public Works installed the signs assisted by the Columbus Fire Department, which provided a ladder truck so workers could bolt the new signs on to the frames.

The signs are on U.S. 31 at Lowell Road and on Jonathan Moore Pike on the city’s west side.
