Highway workers in Letcher County and the six other counties that make up the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s District 12 have an ongoing directive to remove illegal signs from roadsides and intersections.
“There are more political signs this time of year than any other type,” said Mary Westfall-Holbrook, Chief District Engineer. “But the only signs allowed on state property are state signs.”
As examples, Westfall- Holbrook also cited sale signs for a business and those advertising a number to call about jobs. “Even posting a sign for a yard sale, taped to a speed limit sign or a stop sign is illegal,” she said.
