nearly forgotten US60 Highway Sign

nearly forgotten US60 Highway Sign

I rarely see the shield-shaped US Highway signs anymore, or at least in the South. It's almost surprising nobody has stolen this one yet. This sign is near the Singing Bridge in downtown Frankfort, KY. I'd appreciate anyone guess as to how old it is.

When US60 was first routed through Frankfort, It came from the east along Main St., turned south on St. Clair where it passed this sign before crossing the bridge, and then continued west on Louisville Rd. Today, US60 crosses the Kentucky River along Capitol Ave and spends less time in the old, historic part of town. I'm not sure when the reroute happened, but instead of taking this sign down, they just added "TO" onto the sign.
