Illegal Sign Removal Program on Roads

Fairfax County removes signs that are illegally put on or along selected roads under a program that started on July 1, 2013. This includes political campaign signs, advertising signs and more.

Signs will be regularly picked up every week between Tuesday and Thursday by the Sheriff’s Community Labor Force. Signs will not be cleaned up based on public complaints.

The county is removing signs to assist the Virginia Department of Transportationbut VDOT is still responsible for maintaining the roads.

What You Should Know

  • Signs will not be removed from neighborhood streetsonly selected major roads across the county. Create or join a VDOT Adopt-a-Highway group to remove signs from neighborhood streets and other roads.
  • The clean-up program does not address signs on private property. For complaints about signs on private property only, use this online form. Learn more about the rules for signs on private property and other locations.
  • Only signs will be removed from roads—not trash or litter.
  • Contact VDOT about signs that cause a safety hazard on the roads at 1-800-FOR-ROAD, TTY 711, or use VDOT's online form.

After the county removes a sign, it will be stored for five calendar days at the I-66 Transfer Station where it may be reclaimed. Signs will be destroyed after five days. However, VDOT's Adopt-a-Highway groups may collect signs at any time on their designated roads, and they may destroy these signs immediately.
