Driveways Within MDOT Right-of-Way

In accordance with PA 200 of 1969, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has the responsibility to regulate the construction of commercial and residential driveways within State highway Right-of-Way.
Applicants must submit an individual permit application package through the Construction Permit System (CPS) with the following:
  • Drainage Design Checklist For Accessing State Trunklines, (Form 2484)
  • Traffic Analysis, if applicable
  • Traffic Impact Study, if applicable
  • Preliminary review by the local planning commission, for compliance with local long-range development plans, if appropriate
A driveway constructed or reconstructed after August 6, 1969, is not lawful unless a permit has been obtained. Driveways constructed or reconstructed after June 30, 1970, which is the effective date of the rules promulgated pursuant to PA 200 of 1969, must comply with the administrative rules.
