Campaign sign reminder from MnDOT

With upcoming November elections, the Minnesota Department of Transportation reminds campaigners that state law prohibits placement of private signs of any kind on highway right-of-way in Minnesota.

Highway rights of way include driving lanes, inside and outside shoulders, ditches, sight corners at intersections, and boulevards in urban areas.

In addition, state law says that signs may not be placed on private land without the consent of the landowner.
