Entry Description

Encroaching Signs Prohibited from State Right-of-Way


VINCENNES, Ind. - The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) reminds Hoosiers that all signs are prohibited from Federal and State highway rights-of-way, as per Indiana Code 9-21-4-6.  INDOT personnel are empowered by state law to remove unauthorized signs, including real estate, advertising and political signage, within the state right-of-way.  The right-of-way areas that must remain “sign-free” for the safety of the motoring public include:

  • All interstates and their interchanges
  • All intersections where at least one local, state or federal road intersects with a state or federal highway, and
  • All rights-of-way paralleling federal or state highways (the right-of-way extends to the back of the ditch, to the fence line or up to utility poles); INDOT crews will not pull signs placed behind the ditch, fence line or beyond the public utility poles.

Signs that have been removed will be saved at the nearest INDOT Subdistrict office.  To reclaim signs, owners should call their local office for hours of operation.  Subdistrict offices are at the following locations:

  • Linton Subdistrict, 12th Street SE, Linton, IN 812-847-2246
  • Evansville Subdistrict, 16601 Boyle Lane, Evansville, IN 812-867-9017
  • Paoli Subdistrict, 1222 Greenbriar Drive, Paoli, IN 812-723-4411
  • Tell City Subdistrict, 15077 Old State Road 37, Tell City, IN 812-836-2112
  • Vincennes Subdistrict, 3650 South US Highway 41, Vincennes, IN 812-895-7403

INDOT reminds motorists to follow the posted work zone speed limit, use caution and consider worker safety when traveling through a work zone. For the latest news and information about INDOT, please visit
