INDOT: Campaign signs are prohibited in rights-of-way
SOUTH BEND, ind. -- The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is working to make Hoosiers aware that campaign signs are prohibited from any state right-of-way.
With the approaching election, INDOT crews will enforce the code and remove any signs related to campaigns or those that create a safety risk per Indiana code 9-21-4-6.
Sign-free areas include the following:
- Rights-of-way that are parallel to highway entrances and exits
Unmarked rights-of-way will be estimated by crews as the backs of ditches, behind utility poles and fence lines.
All signage will be transported to the closest INDOT location and these may be claimed between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for observed holidays.
To report signs contact INDOT's customer service at 1-855-463-6848 or visit INDOT’s website.
