Rest Area Permits
MDOT receives rest area permit applications from individuals, and non profit organizations. These applications, to operate within the state highway right of way, include the following types of facilities or operations:
- Non-Holiday Coffee Breaks (Providing refreshments for donation where vending machines do not exist)
- Operation CARE (Providing refreshments and travel related information for donation on Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day weekends)
- Distribution of Travel Related Information (Brochures for local interests)
MDOT permits these types of facilities or operations in a manner which does not significantly compromise the integrity of state highway right of way systems, while simultaneously providing assurance to the general traveling public for the safest transportation environment possible.
