Permits - Right of Way & Overweight

Right of Way Permit Application

As of April 2021, the City has revised its right-of-way (ROW) permit bond amounts and filing period. Previously all ROW bonds were required to be specific to a project performed in the ROW, ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. The City has reduced this bond requirement to range from $10,000 to $20,000 for typical project work but still reserves the right to require an additional bond for large-scale projects at the discretion of the Public Works director. Additionally, the City is now allowing bonds to apply to all projects worked on in the ROW for a period of two years.

Please see the ROW requirements, ROW application, and an example of an accepted maintenance/warranty bond for more details.

Unless marked otherwise, all City streets prohibit traffic with a vehicle weight of over six tons without a permit.

A single trip permit is good for seven days and is $50
Round trip permit is good for 14 days and is $80
