Regulations Changes for Right of Way Work

Posted on June 30, 2016 at 9:25 AM by Communications Department

Changes to the fee schedule and the requirements for work within the right of way in Newport News become effective July 1st. The changes affect new permits going forward, and existing permits will still be under the terms in place when they were issued. In general, the requirements for pavement restoration due to cutting of the pavement, such as to install utilities, etc., were clarified. The requirements for restoration have been added as a special provision to the Hampton Roads Regional Construction Standards 5th Edition where the pavement restoration is defined in Section 317. The Special Provision can be found on the City of Newport News Department of Engineering website. Fees were updated to reflect consistency with regional localities and actual costs of inspection. The fee schedule along with the right of way permit application are available on the Department of Engineering’s website.
