EUGENE, Ore. – The warm weather during the past couple of weeks has caused an influx of illegally placed signs.
Lane County Public Works reminds residents to be aware of their garage, estate and yard sale signs as it prepares for roadside maintenance activities.
Improperly placed signs could interfere with maintenance work. They can also be a hazard for drivers, by reducing visibility if posted incorrectly.
Public Works says signs should not be placed within road rights-of-ways; meaning signs should not be placed between the sidewalk and curb. In rural areas, signs should be placed on owner’s property behind utilities or sidewalks.
Lane County Public Works will remove signs that are placed illegally.
Removed signs can be reclaimed at 3040 N. Delta Highway within 30 days. Otherwise the signs will be destroyed.
