ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming Department of Transportation workers have removed a number of political signs placed next to Interstate 80 in Rock Springs.
The signs in Rock Springs were placed on the east onramp of I-80 at College Drive.
WYDOT spokeswoman Stephanie Harsha says interstate ramps are public rights of way where it is generally illegal to post advertising.
Harsha did not know how many signs were removed from the location.
She tells the Rock Springs Rocket-Miner (http://bit.ly/1oNz8PJ ) that WYDOT will keep the signs for up to two weeks, and if they are not picked up, they will be thrown away.
Campaign signs can be placed within WYDOT's right of way only in incorporated cities and towns that specifically permit them.
