As the political season comes into full bloom, signs of the political season are also in full bloom, pretty much everywhere you look. And TXDOT wants to be sure you to know the law does not allow them to be placed on or within any state right of way.
And TXDOT’s Bobby Colwell warns they’re serious about encrochment on TXDOT rights of way. especially if they deem any sign installation as hazardous. If they do, he warns, they will remove it without prior notice and all costs that are associated with the sign removal will be paid by the sign owner.
Colwell tells Navasota News displaying political signs anywhere in public is not allowed anywhere before 90 days prior to the actual election day and they all must be removed within 10 days afterwards. And that anyone placing campaign signs within any city should first check with the city for any special restrictions it might have.
Your best bet, Colwell says, is to contact TXDOT’s Grimes County Maintanence Office at 936-825-3446.
