OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- More than 900 highway signs will be going up across Oklahoma to commemorate Oklahoma's celebration of the 100th anniversary of statehood.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the Turnpike Authority and the state Centennial Commission are working together to put up the signs.

The signs will be multi-colored with gold, red and blue interlocking stars and will read "Oklahoma Centennial '07" in the middle of the sign.

Ten large signs will go up at the state line on interstates and major highways while 215 medium-sized signs will be put up at county lines along four-lane divided highways. Another 677 smaller signs will be placed along two-lane highways and at county line crossings.
