Outdoor Advertising and Junkyard Rules

The Outdoor Advertising and Junkyard programs are federally mandated. MoDOT is responsible for regulation and control of outdoor advertising and junkyards to promote highway safety, convenience and enjoyment of highway travel, along with preserving the natural scenic beauty of highways and adjacent areas.

It is the policy of the State of Missouri that the erection and maintenance of outdoor advertising and junkyards on controlled routes be regulated through rules and regulations promulgated by the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission.
