As state and local politicians run for office, the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) hopes the campaign trail doesn’t run commuters off the road.INDOT reportedly received numerous complaints from residents regarding political campaign signage along state highways in the southeast portion of the state. Indiana law prohibits campaign signs from federal and state highway right-of-way.State highway crews have been removing campaign signs and other illegal postings from right-of-ways during normal maintenance activities.Individual signs that are too close to the road or could cause obstruction to a driver are specifically targeted.According to INDOT, The right-of-way areas which must remain “sign-free” include:All interstates and their interchanges; andAll intersections where at least one local, state or federal road intersects with a state or federal highway; andAll rights-of-way paralleling federal or state highways;Where right-of-way is not clearly marked, it may be estimated as the back of the ditch, to the fence line or up to utility poles.Removed signs are taken to the nearest INDOT subdistrict office where they can be re-claimed by their owners between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.Aurora Subdistrict—8074 U.S. 50 at Aurora, Ind., 812-926-0376Bloomington Subdistrict—2965 Prow Road at Bloomington, Ind., 812-332-1411Columbus Subdistrict—3545 Two Mile Road at Columbus, Ind., 812-372-7837Falls City Subdistrict—5701 U.S. Highway 31 at Clarksville, Ind., 812-282-7493Madison Subdistrict—1875 W.

Barcelona have confirmed that starlets Gerard Deulofeu and Rafinha will be returning to the club as part of their first-team squad.Deulofeu spent last season in England with Everton whilst Rafinha remained in Spain with Celta Vigo – but neither will be loaned out next season.The decision was made by new boss Luis Enrique, and was one of the first following his appointment on a two-year deal.Enrique knows both players well, having coached them for Barcelona B during his three-years in charge, whilst he also signed Rafinha on-loan for Celta last term.Both players impressed during their time away from Camp Nou – and interest in the pair was big, but Enrique wants both to remain.21-year-old midfielder Rafinha, brother of Bayern Munich’s Thiago, has never played for Barcelona’s first-team, whilst Deulofeu has made just two appearances for the Catalan giants. Reports in Spain suggest that Everton – who wanted Deulofeu back for next season – have requested another Barcelona youngster join them on loan.
