Remember, Campaign Signs Prohibited On State Highway Right-of-Way Areas

ALLEN COUNY, Ind. (WOWO): INDOT officials are reminding all Hoosiers that campaign signs are prohibited from federal and state highway right-of-way areas, according to Indiana Code. INDOT crews will remove all unauthorized signs and take them to the nearest INDOT sub district office, where they will be kept until after the election. Campaign signs may be claimed by the owner between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for holidays.

The right-of-way areas which must remain “sign-free” include:

· All interstates and their interchanges.

· All intersections where at least one local, state or federal road intersects with a state or federal highway.

· All rights-of-way paralleling federal or state highways.

· Where right-of-way is not clearly marked, it may be estimated as the back of the ditch, to the fence line or up to utility poles.
