No private signs allowed on public right-of-way, says MnDOT

MnDOT is reminding residents that private signs are prohibited on highway right-of-way in the state.

Private signs could be political, advertising, or a notice, such as for a garage sale or sale of a home or vehicle.

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

More information on sign rules in rights-of-way is on the MnDOT website.
