An Management Program was initiated in January 2006, county wide, and its function is to classify roads, and by classification determine spacing and location of driveways, considering nearest existing driveways and intersections, and review physical obstructions such as horizontal and vertical features which might impair sight distance. The county Access Management Permit also include the driveway culvert approval.
The Board of County Commissioners is the owner of record for all county road right-of-way, and issue permits through the County Engineer’s office for any public or private utilities proposing to locate or relocate in the right-of-way. This includes individual house services, and larger (transmission) lines serving multiple customers.
SPECIAL HAULING PERMITS:
The County Engineer issues permits for overweight, over-width, and over-height vehicles on county roads. Generally, these are “one-trip” applications, and each is reviewed for bridge limitations or road conditions prior to approval.
