The Kansas Department of Transportation wants the public to be aware that all political campaign signs or billboards are prohibited on the state right of way.

Political campaign advertising is allowed on private property bordering state right of way only after first obtaining permission from the property owner.

When KDOT maintenance crews find political or business advertising on state right of way, the signs will be removed without notice and taken to the closest KDOT subarea office where they can be picked up by the owner with the agreement they will not be placed on state right of way again. 

All political campaign signs not picked up will be disposed of after the election.
