A developer seeking a Transportation Permit must complete Form DM-M-P-16 and submit the Application to Caltrans for review and approval.
6-CA-a.4 – Does the Application Meet Caltrans Acceptance Criteria?
After the applicant (developer) submits the Transportation Permit Application, Caltrans reviews the Application for completeness and accuracy. If complete, Caltrans will determine whether to deny the permit based on conditions specified in TPM Section 104.
