Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (b) The Department may issue rules to provide the standards and procedures for vegetation control, including, but not limited to, permit applications, permits, revocations, and the requirements for the replacement of vegetation and landscaping removal to establish clear visibility zones of signs along highways in the State under its jurisdiction.
    (c) The Department shall allow the cutting or trimming of vegetation to clear a visibility zone 250 feet in front of a single-sided sign and 250 feet in front of each side of a double-sided sign. The visibility zone for signs shall also include an additional 250-foot triangular section measured diagonally from the edge of the right-of-way to the edge of pavement. This distance shall be measured from the edge of the sign face closest to the pavement in a direction parallel to the pavement. All cutting or trimming of vegetation shall maintain environmental compliance and in no event shall the cutting or trimming of vegetation violate safety rules of the Department.
