When does a permit expire?

Expiration dates are on a quarterly system for the year to provide for a more even workload for the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) staff. The expiration dates will be the last day of March, June, September or December. A prorating of the renewal fee will be made for permits that fall on a date other than the foregoing expiration dates.

When a permit or permits expire, a Notice of Non-Payment - 60 Day Compliance will be sent by certified mail to the permit holder. The permit holder shall pay the amount due or cancel the permit or permits and remove the sign and sign structure.  MDOT shall cancel the permit should one of the foregoing is not completed within the allotted time frame. An administrative hearing will be requested by MDOT to confirm abandonment and request removal of the sign.
