Indiana Department of Transportation warns that all signs are prohibited from federal and state highway rights-of-way by state law.
INDOT personnel are empowered by state law to remove unauthorized signs, including real estate, advertising and political signage, within the state right-of-way.
The right-of-way areas that must remain sign-free for the safety of the motoring public include:
INDOT crews will not pull signs placed behind the ditch, fence line or beyond public utility poles.
Signs that have been removed will be saved at the nearest INDOT subdistrict office. To reclaim signs, owners should call their local office for hours of operation.
