Garage sale/real estate signs not allowed within highway right of way

Date: 07/21/2009 


The Wyoming Department of Transportation reminds everyone that the placement of signs, whether for political campaigns, advertisements, real estate or garage sales, is not allowed inside the state highway right of way.

No signs of any kind are allowed at any WYDOT office site, parking area, maintenance yard or on any other WYDOT property. Signs are also not allowed to be taped, stapled or otherwise hung on traffic signals or other highway poles or signs within the right of way. Also prohibited are boxes or sandwich boards placed on sidewalks at intersections.
Any signs found improperly located on WYDOT right of way or property will be removed and taken to the District 2 office, at 900 Bryan Stock Trail in Casper (or the nearest WYDOT shop if outside Casper). Signs will be available for pick up for five days after removal. Signs not picked up after five days will be discarded. Similar rules are in effect for the city of Casper. For other cities and towns, please call the respective city hall before posting signs.
Anyone seeing an improperly placed sign or who may have questions can call WYDOT at (307) 473-3303.
Statutes regarding the law for the state of Wyoming and city of Casper are as follows:
  • Signs posted to city poles violate Casper City ordinance 17.96.060, and signs posted along state highways violate the Outdoor Advertising Act (Wyoming State Statute 24-10-104).
