The following is an excerpt of a message for Michigan communities from the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT):
The Michigan Department of Transportation’s (MDOT’s) Local Agency Program (LAP) Unit is reminding local agencies of the permit requirements for local agency projects, originally outlined in a letter dated July 31, 2006. LAP staff continues to observe that some local agencies are submitting their final proposal documents either without all the required permits or have not coordinated their final plans and special provisions with the requirements of the issued permits.
… We are asking that you provide the agencies you represent with this information. If they have any questions regarding setting up a Michigan Business One Stop account, please contact Joe Rios at (517) 241-2103. For any other questions please contact me at (517) 335-2233.
