With as many road signs I've found along old closed roads, they'll probably just leave them like they always seem to do!
I've seen some of those as well. At the Wedge, there's an old, closed and barricaded road that, if you follow it long enough, has some signs along it stating that it's open for vehicular travel and camping. But what I meant is that I'll be the one tearing out the "Road Closed" signs on the Spur Road.

Thought I'd put up another favorite sign. This is in Ash Hollow State Historical Park in Western Nebraska. It's out in the boonies not really near anywhere. A quiet and lonesome place now but but in the mid 1800's a half million people passed this spot heading west.

At the State Park Headquarters there is an aerial photo of this area taken in the fall. The location of the Oregon Trail is quite distinct because the grass along the Trail is a different color than the surrounding grass. Apparently the multitude of wagons destroyed everything growing along the route and one particular kind of native prairie grass was able to recolonize better than the others. I guess it went dormant and changed color sooner in the fall than the other kinds.
