Encroachment Permits Manual

The Encroachment Permits Manual describes Departmental policy, revisions and legislative actions that affect the encroachment permit process. It also provides information on the intergovernmental review process, procedures of the permitting process, storm water management, as-built plan requirements, utility encasement requirements, and other related programs and Departmental policies.

The manual’s purpose is to maintain uniform methods and procedures in the issuance of encroachment permits. Special situations and circumstances that require deviation from departmental design standards and policy are subject to approval by Headquarters Division of Design. Additional information applicable to encroachment permit work may be found in other Departmental manuals.

It is the responsibility of the manual holder to check this web page for the most up-to-date version of individual chapters and appendices of the manual.
