Guidance Document

Pursuant to Neb. Rev. Stat. §84-901.03

This guidance document is advisory in nature but is binding on an agency until amended by such agency. A guidance document does not include internal procedural documents that only affect the internal operations of the agency and does not impose additional requirements or penalties on regulated parties or include confidential information or rules and regulations made in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act. If you believe that this guidance document imposes additional requirements or penalties on regulated parties, you may request a review of the document.



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.
