What is an interim permit?

An interim permit is not for a specific location. It allows a permit holder to apply for a location anywhere in the State of Michigan to erect a sign. MDOT shall issue an interim permit or permits to a holder of a valid permit or permits if the following conditions are met:

  • The permit is a current valid permit and meets the requirements of the Highway Advertising Act of 1972, as amended.
  • The valid permit or permits are surrendered to the department upon the removal of the sign structures.
  • The permit holder verifies removal of the sign structures.
