A right-of-way work permit is required anytime work is performed in the right-of-way. This would include commercial utilities, agricultural utilities, or residential utilities. This may also include tree trimmers or other maintenance crews that need to use the county right of way. Traffic control devices according to the most recent Minnesota MUTCD or the Minnesota Department of Transportation Temporary Traffic Control Layout Field Guide are required.
Although a permit is required for any work, the permit fee, determined by the permit agent, may be waived if the work benefits the county right of way. Any utilities placed in the county right of way must be registered with Gopher One and will need to be located every time notification is received.
