NATSO Urges FHWA to Reject California Waiver on Interstate Advertising

Added on: July 11, 2019


NATSO urged the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to refrain from waiving the current prohibition on commercial advertising on the Interstate right-of-way if California passes pending legislation. The California Senate Transportation Committee recently approved SB 1397, introduced by State Senator Bob Huff, that would permit the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to seek federal approval to use commercial advertising on changeable message signs when they are not being used for safety or transportation-related messages.
