Outdoor Advertising Sign Program

The Outdoor Advertising Sign Program administers the laws and rules related to the Oregon Motorist Information Act, which regulates the location of signs visible to state highways.

The program is intended to:

  • Preserve the recreational value of travel on state highways;
  • Preserve the natural beauty along the highways and in adjacent areas;
  • Promote public safety; and
  • Prohibit the indiscriminate use of outdoor advertising.

  • Blue and white gas, food and lodging signs found on interstate highways and exit ramps;
  • Tourism directional signs, i.e. Left 1/4 mile Your Business.
