The fate of the "Paul Revere Sign" continues to hang in the balance.

It was announced the aging sign was to be taken down some eight months ago, and would be placed in storage until repairs could be made.

Department of Public Infrastructure Commissioner Ron Labelle tells WBSM News workers are ensuring the sign is sturdy before it's taken down.

Labelle admitted the sign has been put on the back burner since the consolidation of roles between the DPI and the DPF.

Though he doesn't have a definitive timeline, Labelle hopes the sign can be taken down and repaired soon.
