You Paid For It: Illegal highway signs still in place

We promised to stay on top of New York's illegal highway signs -- and we are.

The signs are due to come down, but weeks after the state announced they would be removed, there is still no sign of movement.

These signs cost more than $8 million, to promote New York tourism and products. The feds deemed them illegal years ago, and this year, the state agreed to get rid of them, rather than lose millions in federal highway funding.

Transportation commissioner Paul Karas tells CBS6 the state and the feds are still working out the details.

There are more than 500 of the illegal signs on the Thruway and other major state highways.
