Campaign Signs Prohibited on Highway Right-of-Ways


It’s the political campaigning season, and the Indiana Department of Transportation reminds candidates campaign signs are not allowed in federal and state highway right-of-ways.

INDOT crews are required to remove unauthorized signs. Prohibited areas include interstates and their interchanges, all intersections where at least one local, state or federal road intersects with a state or federal highway, and an area that extends from a federal or state highway to the back of a ditch, to the fence line or up to utility poles. Signs will be taken 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 INDOT Northwest District can be contacted by calling 1-855-464-6368.
