The public right-of-way is an easement granted for transportation or infrastructure like streets, sidewalks, or alleys. The right of way typically extends beyond the street to include the sidewalk and the curb lawn in-between. Any private use or construction in the right-of-way must be permitted to make sure it is safe, meets standards for construction, and has adequate traffic control if needed. You need a Right-of-Way Permit for things like placing a dumpster at the street, repaving a driveway, repairing sidewalk, or any utility or infrastructure work.
Please submit an application for a Right-of-Way permit at least 10 business days before approval is needed. You will need to include plans or specifications and a traffic control plan if applicable.
A late fee of $100 will be charged for all permits not obtained prior to work starting.
