MDOT provides guidance for controlling the screening of junkyards adjacent to highway right of way. This program area is relatively stable. The department routinely responds to requests for regulatory information. Owners are then held responsible for screening properties visible from state highways (I, M and US routes).
MDOT's responsibility for the administration of junkyard control is derived from the following three laws:
- Title 23 USC 136: Control of Junkyards
- Title 23 CFR 751.1 - 751.25: Junkyard Control and Acquisition
