(Neb.)-State Says Campaign Signs Don’t Belong On Highway Rights-of-Way
(Neb.)-Various sizes of campaign signs usually appear along roadsides around national and local election time. The State Department of Roads (DOR) is reminding Nebraskans that it is against the law to erect political campaign signs, or any unpermitted signs, on state highway rights-of-way.
State road maintenance crews will remove signs that are improperly placed within the state highway rights-of-way. These signs will be stored for a brief period of time in state maintenance yards across the state, where they can be reclaimed by owners.
This state right-of-way reminder also applies to any errant planting or harvesting operations, parked equipment or salvage items, commercial sales or private business stands, and debris.
According to State of Nebraska statutes, no physical or functional encroachments upon of state highway rights-of-way are permitted without written consent from department of roads. Those needing further information concerning the boundaries of rights-of-way corridors, or those seeking permit information, should contact their state roads’ district headquarters or their nearest NDOR staffed office.
