Right of Way Construction

Right of Way Permit


Any construction or changes within the right of way, public or private property must be permitted by Public Services. Below are the links to permits for residential owners, commercial, and utility companies.

Permit Applications


Sunshine State One Call – Call Before You Dig 811


Florida law states a homeowner must call two full business days before digging in any easement, right of way, or permitted use area. Contractors are required to call in every job that involves digging or disturbing the earth's surface. A locate ticket and number is generated at the completion of the call. For more information, read the Call Before You Dig document.

Pavers in the Right of Way


If construction in the right of way uses pavers, stamped concrete, or asphalt, a Maintenance and Hold Harmless Agreement is required. Upon completion and execution of the agreement, the document must be recorded at the Okaloosa County Clerk of Courts office.
