Department of Transportation Services

If your project will involve performing construction or placing equipment in an area that affects public transportation, you will be required to obtain permit approval from the Department of Transportation (DOT).


In order to keep our streets safe and minimize disruption to businesses, motorists, and pedestrians, the DOT issues over 150 different types of sidewalk and roadway construction permits to various agencies including utility suppliers, contractors, government agencies and homeowners. Activities that require DOT permits span from street openings, sidewalk construction, installing canopies, and more. If you are going to undertake any construction activity that impacts a sidewalk, roadway or highway, you will be required to register with the DOT and receive the necessary permit approvals.
