Right-of-Way Permits

A right-of-way is a piece of property that lies between private lots, within which all roadways and utility mains are constructed. Any work (excavation, construction, culverts, driveways, overhead lines, etc.) within the ROW requires a permit. This permit is issued by the jurisdiction within which the work is taking place, such as County or Town. ROW permit applications must be submitted no less than 3 days prior to and no more than 30 days prior to excavation.

In Estes Park, permits cost a $50 flat fee, plus $200 for excavation within the asphalt roadway and additional fees for length of work. (See Details in the General Specifications - ROW guidelines) All work within the ROW requires a call to the Utilities Notification Center of Colorado at 800-922-1987 to verify utility locations. This is a free service.
