It’s the political campaigning season and the Indiana Department of Transportation wants to remind candidates that all campaign signs are prohibited from federal and state highway rights-of-way.
By law, INDOT crews are required to remove all unauthorized signs within the right-of-way. Prohibited areas 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 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.
Removed signs from around the LaPorte, Starke, Marshall, or Pulaski County area will be saved at the nearest INDOT Subdistrict office. Signs may be reclaimed at the LaPorte Subdistrict, Plymouth Subdistrict or Winamac Subdistricts during regular hours.
