Various permits are required to either work within the County road right of way or have work done by the Highway Department

Driveway Permit

Any new driveway or extension of an existing driveway requires a driveway permit. However, no driveway permit will be approved for a development until the local municipality approves the development. Once the driveway permit is received, the site will then be checked for sight distance and determination of size of pipe needed. The permitted will then pay the appropriate fee associated with pipe size and the County Highway Department will install the new driveway pipes or extensions.
