Unauthorized signs and objects not allowed on state highway rights of way
BAXTER, Minn. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation reminds citizens that placing unauthorized signs and other objects on state highway rights of way is illegal and can be dangerous.
"With warm weather arriving, there is a significant increase in advertising signs and items for sale placed illegally along state roadways," said Mark Renn, MnDOT's roadway regulations supervisor in St. Cloud.
State law also says that items may not be placed on private property outside of the right of way limits but in proximity to a roadway without consent of the landowner.
