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 right-of-way. Various sizes of signs usually appear along roadsides around national and local election time.
Maintenance crews of the state DOR 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 Roads Department 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 or private business stands, 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 Department of Roads.
Those needing further information concerning the boundaries of right-of-way corridors', or seeking permit information, should contact their Nebraska Roads' District headquarters, or their nearest NDOR staffed office.
