    I'd do it with italics.

    Either:

    1)
    Then he saw the familiar yellow sign: One Lane Bridge Ahead

    2)
    Then he saw the familiar yellow sign,
    Slow: One Lane Bride Ahead
    I think I prefer the second one - indented blockquoting, because it allows for that implied colon you get on a lot of signage. But there are probably a bunch of ways to punctuate that. You probably could do it with quotes as well, but I think italics are cleaner.

    An hour and a half later he was nearing the bridge, a yellow sign said "ONE LANE BRIDGE AHEAD" in big black letters.
