Access Permits

Rural Access Permits Access onto public roads is an important and necessary function of the public road system. Whether the access is for use by homeowners or businesses it serves to provide a way for the drivers to get onto and use the public road system. Because any access to a public road involves placing the driveway on public right-of-way, it is required, by law, that the landowners who wish to access the public road from their property get approval from the appropriate highway authority before installing that driveway.
