Transfer Permit Procedures

When a sign is sold, the permit must also be transferred. It is the responsibility of the permit holder to inform MoDOT of sign transfers. A transfer application and statement of intent to transfer the permit should be provided to the buyer when the sign is sold. The completed transfer application along with the statement of transfer and $10.00 transfer fee should be returned to the ODA Specialist. Outstanding permit fees must be satisfied before a transfer can be processed. 

How to Locate Property Lines Along MoDOT Right of Way

MoDOT does not allow signs to be placed on or overhang onto MoDOT right of way. To determine a property line, you may request a set of plans sheets from the local district office on the MoDOT website.
