Official Deer Warning Signage

We are continuing our efforts to have FDOT erect deer warning signs along US-1 between Little Torch and Sugarloaf Keys where Key Deer live (and get hit by cars). Most tourists and many residents don’t even know Key Deer exist in those places. We have the support of the Sheriff’s Office, the USFWS, and the need for this signage is directly stated in the Refuge’s Comprehensive Plan. We understand FDOT has approved the new signage in 2020 and have provided them with a GIS-based study results of deer kill “hot spots” to help with determining the most effective locations for the new signs.
