Pursuant to Neb. Rev. Stat. §84-901.03
Our participation in the Federal-Aid Highway Program requires that we assure to the Federal Highway Administration that all real property within the boundaries of a federally-aided highway is devoted exclusively to the purpose of that highway, and that the real property is preserved free of all other public or private alternative uses. With State and local Federal funding at stake, it is important that we all cooperate to insure that we are in compliance with Federal Regulations.
Exceptions are permitted when we have determined such use of the real property is in the public interest and will not impair the highway or interfere with the free and safe flow of traffic and the FHWA has concurred in our determination.
Banners, provided they conform to our policy, are exceptions that have been determined to be in the public interest and not to impair the highway or interfere with the free and safe flow of traffic.
