Placement of permanent non-traffic regulating signs by governmental agencies within the state highway right-of-way is allowed if such signs do not interfere with the operation and maintenance of the state highway and serve a general public interest.
Applicants must submit an individual permit application package through the Construction Permit System (CPS) with the following, if applicable:
- A resolution from the governmental agency indicating the general public is served by placing a sign and the governmental agency agrees to maintain the sign, if applicant is a local governmental agency;
- Memorandum of Understanding, if applicant is state governmental agency;
- Letter of Understanding, if applicant is a federal governmental agency;
- Necessary approvals from underlying fee owners or other parties of interest.
