Right-of-Way Use Permit

Please see New Updates for 2021 (Notice Letter)

The Right-of-Way Use Permit is a tool to help regulate unauthorized obstructions of, excavations in, and use of the County’s rights-of-way and easements by utilities and line providers by requiring permits for ALL construction activities within the Weld County rights-of-way, whether gravel or paved, and including all public drainage easements. A Right-of-Way Use Permit grants a permit holder permission to occupy, excavate, survey, perform locations, or construct facilities within the County rights-of-way or easement, and provide for the subsequent restoration upon completion.

Call Before You Dig (811)

Call811.comKnowing where underground utility lines are buried before each digging project begins helps to prevent injury, expense and penalties. The depth of utility lines may vary and multiple utility lines may exist in one area. Simple digging jobs can damage utility lines and can disrupt vital services to an entire neighborhood, harm those who dig and result in expensive fines and repair costs. Marked lines show those who dig the approximate location of underground lines and help prevent undesired consequences.

One easy phone call to 811 quickly begins the process of getting underground utility lines marked. 811 personnel will then notify affected utility companies, who will send crews to mark underground lines for free.

For simple home improvement projects and even on private property, calling 811 will save you time and hassle.
