Utah State Highway Right-of-Way Overview (3-UT-c)

Information current as of 2020
In Utah, any person (developer) may need a permit from the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) if a project requires access to a state highway Right-of-Way or construction, modification or relocation of an existing state highway. Utah Admin. Code § R930-6.8(2)(a)-(b). UDOT's regional offices protect the State’s right-of-way and facilitate and coordinate other highway users and provide for safe and efficient operation of Utah's highways. The regional offices are responsible for accommodating utility facilities for public service and work zone safety by issuing permits for access, encroachment, outdoor advertising, junkyard, filming, and special events.



State Highway Right-of-Way Overview Process


3-UT-c.1 to 3-UT-c.2 – Does the Proposed Activity Require Utility Lines within the UDOT Right-of-Way

The developer may need to obtain an encroachment permit from the Utah Department of Transportation if the proposed project or activity will require any utility lines to be located within the UDOT Right-of-Way (ROW). Utah Admin. Code § R930-6-8(1)(g). For more information on encroachment permits, see:

3-UT-c.3 to 3-UT-c.4 – Does the Proposed Activity Require a New, Modified, or Relocated Access Point to a State Highway

A developer may need a grant of access permit from the Utah Department of Transportation if the project requires the construction of a new driveway, modification or relocation of an existing driveway or roadway, or to close access on a state highway ROW. A new access permit is also required when there is a change in land and use or a change in the use of an existing Access Permit. Utah Admin. Code § R930-6-8(2)(a)-(b). A grant of access permit does not carry with it a right of construction. Utah Admin. Code § R930-6-8(1)(g). For more information on grant of access permits see:

Grant of Access Permit:

3-UT-c.5 – No Permit Needed, Continue with Project

If neither of the above permits are required for the project, no permit is required from the Utah Department of Transportation. The developer may proceed with the project.
