Restaurant Carryout Zone Program

On March 16, Governor Whitmer restricted restaurant service to delivery and carry-out service only due to COVID-19.  To assist restaurants out during this time, the City of Detroit has created a temporary program to provide Carryout Zones for restaurants. Any restaurant that requests an on-street Carryout Zone will be given one for no fee.  

  • The Restaurant Carryout Zone is intended to make it convenient for customers to pick-up orders from restaurants.  It is the expectation that restaurants will take orders to the customer’s vehicle to reduce exposure to COVID-19
  • To request a Restaurant Carryout Zone, all you need to do is provide basic information about your restaurant here
  • Signage will be installed by the Department of Public Works within 48 to 72 hours of your request
  • The program is 100% free to City of Detroit restaurateurs and does not require a permit, only a completed application
  • This is a temporary program that will be evaluated over the upcoming weeks


For more information on this program, please contact Dayo Akinyemi, Department of Public Works Deputy Director, at 313.224.3901 or at [email protected].
