As the political season heats up, you are reminded that campaign signs are prohibited from federal and state highway rights-of-way. INDOT personnel are required by state law to remove unauthorized signs if they are in the right-of-way.
All signs will be taken to an INDOT sub-district office. The sub-districts in our area include stations at LaPorte, Plymouth and Winamac, and anyone wishing to reclaim a sign may do so from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday though Friday.
The 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 all rights-of-way paralleling federal or state highways.
If you need more information, call the INDOT office toll-free at 855-GO-INDOT (855-464-6368).
