Why do I need a permit to work in the State highway Right-of-Way?
Michigan state laws require permission from the governmental unit having jurisdiction of the street or highway to construct or conduct an operation inside of the State highway Right-of-Way. State-owned roads may include the following:
Old U.S. Route
State "M" Route
Old State "M" Route
Interstate "I" Route
Note: Some US/M Routes may have a street name associated within city boundaries. For example, M-99 is also known as Martin Luther King Blvd.
