Excludes Temporary Occupancy Permits
The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) grants permits
for permanent installations within State right-of-way and in areas maintained
by the State. Installations requiring occupancy permits include, but are not
limited to the following:
- Street improvements
- Traffic signals and related installations
- Landscaping, multi-use trails
- Interchanges, grade separations
- All other
special uses of a year or longer duration
An encroachment permit
and an NDOT-approved traffic control plan must be secured before performing
this type of work within NDOT right-of-way.
To be considered for
placing an installation within State right-of-way, you will need to first
submit an encroachment permit application to your local NDOT administrative
offices. A fee will be required, with the amount being contingent upon the
category of permit required.
A site plan rendering roadway features
may be necessary, along with an advance meeting to review preliminary plans
with an NDOT District Traffic Engineer. This meeting may help avoid making
multiple sets of plans before construction elements are acceptable for
review. A traffic study may be required, along with other items.
Upon approval of an NDOT permit, the Permittee will contact the appropriate
NDOT permit office in advance of construction to activate the permit and
schedule a pre-construction meeting with an NDOT inspector.
Advertising is not allowed within NDOT right-of-way.
remember that no use of State roadway is authorized until an encroachment
permit has been processed and approved. The Permittee must also obtain any
and all other permits that may be required by State law or local
