Signs, other items will be removed by mowing crews

Transportation crews say they will remove illegal signs and other items along state and federal highways in Kentucky. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

The commonwealth’s transportation cabinet is reminding political candidates, residents, business operators, and property owners no signs are allowed on state-maintained right of way, other than official highway signs and items approved through a permitting process.

In a release, the cabinet emphasizes campaign signs must be placed beyond right of way limits.

Kentucky’s primary election is May 17th, two weeks after Indiana’s primary.

Officials say mowing will be in full swing in western Kentucky in the coming weeks and crews will not mow around illegally placed items -- they will remove them.

The transportation cabinet says signs and other items delay mowing and create potential hazards.

Unclaimed materials will be trashed or recycled.
