hundred  eighty-seven,  thence in a general westerly direction to inter-
sect with existing route number seventeen or to a connection  with  that

  S  2. The commissioner of transportation shall provide for the instal-
lation and maintenance of adequate signage of the state  highway  system

  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
