Billboards

Static billboards are the most common type of outdoor advertising sign in Oregon; however, there is an increasing number of digital billboards, replacing the traditional poster or canvas style signs.

Digital billboards include any sign that is able to change message by any electronics process or remote control. Such billboards are required to "hold" a message for at least eight seconds, and the message change process must be accomplished in two seconds or less.
