What are the guidelines for temporary signs along a roadway?

St. Croix County Highway Department works to mirror the guidelines noted for State highways in regards to the placement of signs.  Any signs along roadways, including political/campaign signs, garage sale, for sale, etc. pose potential hazards.

Improperly placed signs can:

  • Obstruct a motorist’s view
  • Distract a driver’s attention
  • Compound damages or injuries in the event of a crash
  • Endanger the safety of individuals who are erecting signs along busy highways
  • Present obstacles to crews who maintain (mow) roadways
  • Political/campaign signs, especially larger billboard-type signs, are particularly dangerous when placed in vision areas at intersections.
