Political Signage/ State Highways

Share this post

The Indiana Department of Transportation reminds all Hoosiers that state law prohibits campaign signs from federal and state highway rights-of-way [[ Indiana Code 9-21-4-6]].   IN-DOT personnel are authorized to remove unauthorized signs, including real estate, advertising and political signage within the state right-of-way. Areas that must stay “sign free” for the safety of the motoring public include:

 

· All interstates and their interchanges;

 

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

 

· All rights-of-way parallel to federal or state highways --the right-of-way extends to the back of the ditch, to the fence line or up to utility poles.

 

Removed signs will be saved at the nearest INDOT Subdistrict office, which locally are in LaPorte, Gary, Plymouth, Rensselaer, Winamac, and Monticello.
