[ARCHIVED] Signs not allowed in county right-of-way

With campaign season underway, the Linn County Secondary Road Department reminds the public that placement of objects, including political campaign signs, within a county right-of-way is prohibited due to public safety concerns. Signs placed in the right-of-way are subject to removal.

The typical minimum county right-of-way on rock roads is 33 feet from the center of the road. On paved roads, the typical distance is 50-60 feet from the center of the road. Placing signs beyond the county ditch or along fence lines is recommended when unsure of the right-of-way width adjacent to property. Placing signs on private property or at the fence line requires the property owner’s permission.

Campaign signs removed by the county from the right-of-way along secondary roads will be taken to the Secondary Road main shop yard at 1944 County Home Road, Marion. Signs may be retrieved by campaigns during business hours of 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Identification is required to ensure people who pick up signs are associated with the campaign.

For questions, please call the Linn County Engineer and Secondary Road Department at (319) 892-6400.
