(Lincoln) — The Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR) is reminding Nebraskans that it is against the law to post 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 state highway rights-of-way. The 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.
Other signs & activities banned from highway-right-of-ways are planting or harvesting operations, parked equipment or salvage items, commercial sales, private business stands, garage sale signs, and debris. This does not pertain to hay harvesting operations, which expire September 15. According to State of Nebraska statutes, no physical or functional encroachments upon right-of-way of state highways are permitted, except during hay harvesting operations.
