Disposal of Earth Excavation Material or Contractor's Plant Sites
A permit from the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is required when a contractor would like to dispose of earth excavation materials or place a plant site within the State highway Right-of-Way.
When this activity occurs within the limits of an MDOT construction project, a permit is not required. A contractor’s disposal or storage site that is outside the project limits requires a permit. The permit applicant shall ensure the MDOT job number is entered in the Construction Permit System (CPS) to eliminate fees. For more information on the Construction Permit process, click here.
