Illegally placed signs will continued to be removed

LEXINGTON, Ky (WTVQ) – Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews will continue to remove illegally placed items along state maintained right of way areas.

No signage is allowed on right of way for U.S. and Kentucky routes — other than official highway signs and items approved through a permit process.

With election season in full swing, campaign signs must be placed beyond right of way limits.

The restriction also includes signage for yard sales and real estate advertising, these signs should be behind sidewalks.

Items placed on right of way areas create delays for mowing crews and are potential hazards for mowing operators and passing motorists.

Removed items will be taken to each county’s KYTC maintenance facility and held for a month. Unclaimed materials will be trashed or recycled.
