NMDOT REMINDS ELECTION SIGNS ON STATE HIGHWAYS IS ILLEGAL

In a release, the New Mexico Department of Transportation is reminding residents and candidates that state law prohibits any person from placing, maintaining, or displaying any unauthorized sign upon any highway. Especially in election years, signs are often posted on state road right-of-ways. The NMDOT says that any signs that encroach on the right-of-way, including signs mounted to the fencing or signs/signal support posts, will be removed. If anyone believes their signs have been removed and collected from a state road right-of-way by the NMDOT can contact the local district office to collect the signs within two weeks.
