INDOT asks to keep roadsides clear of campaign clutter

INDOT is urging you to keep any campaign signs out of the public right-of-way.

That means keeping campaign signs out of intersections, interchanges and the right of way strips that run parallel to highways. If you don’t know where the right-of-way is, you should assume it is the same as the fence line, the back of any drainage ditch, behind utility poles or at the edge of the sidewalk.

Those signs can block visibility, causing traffic hazards for drivers and pedestrians.

Signs found to be in the right-of way will be collected and taken to the nearest INDOT office where you can claim them. You can pick up your signs between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday

To report signs placed in the right-of-way, contact INDOT customer service at 855-463-6848.
