Changes to Right-of-Way Use and Construction Permit, Policy 8.3.1.


Effective May 1, 2018 the following changes to this policy were implemented by the Transportation & Engineering Division. Refer to the policy for more detail.

  • Large containers, such as roll-off dumpsters, that are temporarily placed in the Right-of-Way will be permitted via a $50 fee.
  • Permit bonds may be electronically transmitted in lieu of the original bond in order to expedite permit issuance.  The original bond must still be sent to the Division and received within 10 calendar days.
  • Facility Owners of underground over overhead utilities, telecom / phone / cable lines, or irrigation ditch water pipes, that occupy the right-of-way, are required to comply with County requirements to relocate or remove their lines that interfere with planned County construction projects within a timely manner after notification.
  • Inspection Fees - New or Updated Fees will apply for Manholes & Vaults, Traffic Control Plan Review, and Notice of Intent (NOI) Field Inspection.
  • Plans for excavating, boring, or utility potholing in recently paved streets will be prohibited for a period of 2 years, unless for emergency repairs.  Contractors planning to make these street cuts in less than the 2-Year moratorium must obtain permission from the Division Director, and will be subject to a higher degree of repairs and asphalt patching requirement.
  • All work permitted in the right-of-way shall incorporate erosion and sediment controls.
