DOTD Encourages Candidates To Be Mindful Of Guidelines When Posting Campaign Signs

Written by on September 27, 2022

BATON ROUGE, La. — The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development would like to remind candidates that as they conduct their campaign for public office, please keep the following in mind:

  1. It is against Louisiana Law to place signs within the right of way of a state highway.
  2. Campaign signs placed in the right of way will be removed and stored at the nearest DOTD parish maintenance unit for 30 days.

A good rule of thumb is to place your sign behind existing utility poles on property where you have received permission from the private property owner. Most utilities are within the DOTD right of way.

For directions about where and how to reclaim any of your signs that have been removed by DOTD personnel, please contact:
