A “Certificate of Liability” is required for any work done by, or on behalf of any public entity/local government. These permits will be issued once a “Certificate of Liability” is provided by the designated contractor or the public entity/local government.
The certificate must list the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission as the certificate holder, it must be in effect for the specified time that a presence is maintained on the right of way and it must provide coverage amounts in accordance with the General Provision outlined in Section 9 below:
"Section 9. The Applicant agrees to hold harmless the commission, its officers and employees from all liability, judgment, cost, expenses and claims growing out of damages of any nature whatsoever, to any person or property arising out of performance or non-performance of said work, or existence of said improvements. The applicant shall carry commercial general liability insurance and commercial automobile liability insurance from a company authorized to issue insurance in Missouri, and to name the Commission, and MoDOT and its employees, as additional named insured in amounts sufficient to cover the sovereign immunity limits for Missouri public entities ($500,000 per claimant and $3,000,000 per occurrence) as calculated by the Missouri Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration, and published annually in the Missouri Register pursuant to Section 537.610 R.S. Mo."
