Caltrans Goal - Stewardship and Efficiency - Performance Target: approve or deny 95 percent of the accepted encroachment permit application packages within 30 calendar days.

As part of the Caltrans' continuous effort to improve its services, a multi-disciplinary team studied the current encroachment permit process and recommended the changes below to achieve the performance target.

Therefore, effective May 1, 2019, Caltrans will be following the new recommended process of accepting only complete encroachment permit application packages. Each package will be screened for completeness using the following checklist:
