ATTENTION PROPERTY OWNERS
ENCROACHMENTS ON COUNTY RIGHT OF WAY

Over the past few years it has come to our attention that some landowners have been continually encroaching upon the right of way of the Trempealeau County Trunk Highway System. Under WI STATUS 86.04 unauthorized placement of such items as fencing; planting of crops, shrubs and trees; farm equipment or vehicles for sale; and the placement of advertising signs (real estate, political, etc.) on right of way are prohibited. This creates a safety hazard for the motoring public. Person(s) placing these encroachments can be held liable should they cause or contribute to an accident.
