No signs allowed

With the election season approaching, the Indiana Department of Transportation reminds Hoosiers that no signs - including real estate, advertising and political signs - may be placed in the rights-of-way of state and federal highways.

Unauthorized signs will be removed and stored at the nearest INDOT subdistrict office.

Areas that must remain sign free include:

• All interstates and their interchanges.

• All intersections where at least one local, state or federal road intersects with a state or federal highway.

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

For more information, call the Fort Wayne district office at 866-227-3555.
