My project requires me to work within County right-of-way. What do I need to do?
Any private work being performed within Yakima County right of way requires a Right-of-Way Use Permit. In most cases, the applicant or their contractor must provide a Traffic Control Plan that describes appropriate warning signage for motorist and other travelers through the work area.

A utility franchise may also be required. Depending on the issue in question, you may be directed to a specific department staff person to answer your road project question. Technical, engineering, or managerial staff will respond to your inquiry as quickly as possible, contact them at 509-574-2300.Forms and Applications
