Ryan Doe of Harder Signs of Rockford was on the job Monday in Dixon taking care of what’s become an overarching concern to some local residents: a not-so-letter-perfect arch. Some of the illuminated letters on the arch have been burned out in recent months, leaving part of the city’s iconic welcome sign in the dark. Since traffic was already down to one lane due to the arch work, the street department also took the opportunity to fix two birds with one stone and repair a broken concrete median below the arch.
