What happens if I need to remove my sign?

If you remove the sign to repair it, or remove it for a season and intend to put it back, please inform MDOT. If you have been ordered by an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) to remove your sign, you are to remove it within the time frame prescribed in the ALJ's Order. If you do not remove the sign and the removal falls on the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), the sign owner or the landowner (if the sign owner cannot be found) will be charged double the cost of removal or $500, whichever is greater.
