Right-of-Way Permit Applications

The Agency requires an approved permit for all right-of-way treatments. Permits are required prior to treating all transmission lines, highways, airport approaches, pipelines, railroads, and railroad yards. Permits are not required to treat electric power substations, pole yards, storage yards, pipeline substations, highway garages and storage areas, and airport runways, taxi-strips, and storage areas. All right-of-way permit applications received by the Agency will be posted here for 30 days for public review. Comments received during the 30-day posting period will be compiled and evaluated by Agency staff.
