Highway work permits are required for any work that is to be done within or immediately adjacent to the County Road Right-of-Way. It will be the responsibility of the person(s) obtaining the permit to perform all work on the County Right-of-Way at their expense except new, private driveways which will be installed by County forces.
Some examples of activities requiring a highway work permit are:
- Installing a private or residential sub-division driveway access along a County Road
- Installation of any overhead or underground utility cables, pipes, or structures along or under a County Road
- Installing any advertising sign, display, or device within the County Road Right-of-Way
Once the application is completed and returned with the applicable fee and a site plan to the Wayne County Highway Department, a representative will contact the permittee to discuss the proposed work.
