Campaign Signs Not Allowed On State Right Of Ways

KSAL StaffJune 26, 2014

The Kansas Department of Transportation is warning political candidates that the agency’s crews will remove campaign signs found alongside the state’s highways.

The department notes that Kansas law prohibits campaign signs and billboards on a highway right-of-way. The law allows only guide, warning or regulatory signs in those spaces.

The reminder of the rule comes as campaigning ramps up before the state’s Aug. 5 primary.

KDOT says that when its crews find political or business advertising on state right of way, the signs will be removed immediately and taken to the closest KDOT office. Owners can pick them up but must agree that they won’t be placed on state right of way again.

The agency will dispose of any uncollected campaign signs after the election.
