The Engineering Division is responsible for the construction management for all the public roadway projects. The right-of-way is a section of land maintained by the Town that usually contains streets, sidewalks, multi-use paths, and public landscaping and art.
Engineering staff also issues right-of-way permits for all construction and activities that take place in the Town's right-of-way.
Right-of-way permits are required for anyone performing work that will impact or infringe upon the right-of-way, such as:
- Utility work
- Placing a temporary signs along the roadway
- Placing storage containers in the street (for example, ones used for packing up your home to move)
- Making improvements to your driveway where it ties into public property
- Contractors working with the Town to improve the right-of-way
Boring(s) shall be required on all pavements unless specific authorization to cut the pavement is granted by the Town Engineer or designee. Arterial and collector streets will require boring; if boring is not feasible, then the surface of the roadway shall be milled to a depth of 2-inches for the entire width of the roadway and a distance of at least 250-feet in each direction from the patch and repaved with a 2-inches course of Town approved asphalt mix. Any existing rubberized pavement shall be entirely removed. The Applicant shall submit an asphalt mix design to the Town for approval 48 hours prior to paving.
All pavement cuts are subject to the following fee schedule:
a. Pavement cuts up to 20 square feet: $150.00 (includes permit and inspection fees)
b. Pavement cuts more than 20 square feet: $450.00 (includes permit and inspection fees)
c. Pavement cuts within streets which have been constructed or overlaid within the previous 48 months or received a surface treatment within the previous 24 months shall be assessed a pavement restoration impact fee equivalent to the cost of a surface treatment for the full width of the pavement for a length of 100’ in each direction from the street cut.
The minimum restoration fee will be $1,337.50, based on 535 square yards at an average cost of $2.50 per square yard. This restoration fee is in addition to Right-of-Way Construction permit fees.
