RIGHT OF WAY PERMITS
Right-of-way is the land that a public road or highway occupies. It generally extends a certain distance from the center of the road and usually includes the ditches, culverts and utility poles.
The authority to regulate work that obstructs or interferes with the safety or usage of any portion of the county right-of-way is provided in Chapter 5547 of the Ohio Revised Code and includes all objects in the right-of-way that are owned by utilities or adjacent property owners. The authority to regulate the installation of driveway culverts, other excavation or construction/reconstruction of utility poles on township roads is provided in Section 5571.16 of the Ohio Revised Code.
In order to ensure that all construction that is done in the public right-of-way does not adversely affect the safety of the traveling public, the County Engineer administers a permit process on behalf of the County Commissioners. All property owners, contractors or utility companies that wish to do work on ditches, driveways, storm sewers, utility poles or underground pipes and cables need to get a permit from the County Engineer's Permit Department.
