The Wisconsin Department of Transportation's primary responsibility is to develop, maintain, and operate a state trunk highway system designed to move traffic from one destination to another in a safe, efficient, and expeditious manner. Regulating signs, both on and off highway right-of-way, is an important part of this responsibility.
Directional and informational signs are intended to guide motorists to various businesses, services or activities. Certain requirements must be met in order to legally erect a sign. The table below provides links to additional information for the various directional and informational signs.
