We talked with Gene Powell with the local TXDOT office on rules and regulations when it comes to placing campaign signs. Powell said he could only speak to TXDOT rules, but as far as our roads are concerned, no campaign sign is allowed to be placed on TXDOT right of way, and that isnít a TXDOT policy this is a state law that actually prohibits placing campaign signs in TXDOT right of way.
