A permit from INDOT is required in order to erect and/or maintain any outdoor advertising sign, adjacent to a Control Route. On-premise signs, "for sale" signs, and underground public utility warning signs do not require a permit.

The issuance of this permit shall in no way preclude the actions of any state agency, including INDOT, from initiating legal proceedings against the applicant for violations of any state or federal law, Including without limitation, violations of federal or state environmental laws and regulations; nor is this approval intended to influence any action currently pending before a local board, commission or agency. Please reference Indiana’s outdoor advertising laws and regulations for any explanation or information required by this application. Failure to provide truthful, accurate and adequate information required by this application constitutes sufficient cause for the application or subsequent permit to be denied, canceled, or revoked.
