NDOR: Campaign Signs Don’t Belong on Highway Right-of-Way

The Nebraska Department of Roads is reminding Nebraskans that it is against the law to erect political campaign signs, or any signs, on state highway right-of-way.

Various sizes of signs often appear along roadsides around national and local election time.

NDOR maintenance crews will remove signs that are improperly placed within the statehighway rights-of-way. These signs will be stored for a brief period of time in NDOR maintenance yards across the state, where they can be reclaimed by the owners.

This state right-of-way reminder applies to any errant plantings or harvesting operations, parked equipment or salvage items, commercial sales, private business stands, garage sale
signs, and debris.

According to State of Nebraska statutes, no physical or functional encroachments upon right-of-way of State highway are permitted without written consent of the NDOR.

Those needing further information concerning the boundaries of right-of-way corridors’, or seeking permit information, should contact their NDOR District headquarters, or their nearest NDOR staffed office.
