Residents, business operators and property owners along US and KY routes are reminded as elections draw near, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews have authority and will remove non-permitted signs along state maintained right-of-way areas.
Additionally, as spring approaches, KYTC officials take this opportunity to remind everyone no yard sale, auction, business or any other sign is allowed on state maintained right-of-way areas. Such signs must be placed beyond right-of-way limits.
It is also illegal to attach items such as flyers, posters, balloons or streamers to stop signs, highway markers or any other road sign.
Illegally placed materials along roads can create hazards by blocking sight distance or distracting drivers, particularly at intersections.
Any removed item will be taken to the KYTC maintenance facility in that county. It may be claimed within 30 days. Unclaimed materials will be trashed or recycled.
KYTC District 4 serves Breckinridge, Grayson, Green, Hardin, Hart, LaRue, Marion, Meade, Nelson, Taylor and Washington counties.
