Highway Permits

The Highway Department administers a permit program with an objective of preventing damage to roadways and maintaining traffic safety and convenience.

The objective is accomplished through a permit process that controls installation of utilities and other physical changes within County rights-of-way and a transportation permit system that regulates oversized loads.

Prior to obtaining an approved utility permit, the applicant and contractor must be registered with the County. Please allow 24 hours for moving permit processing and up to two weeks for all other permits to be processed.
