The Permitting Services unit reviews and issues commercial and residential permits for all work performed within Agency-owned rights-of-way. This includes the installation and maintenance of utility facilities and the construction and maintenance of commercial accesses to property adjacent to the rights-of-way, including permits under Title 19 VSA Section 1111 Statute, commonly referred to as Section 1111 permits and corresponding Title 19 VSA Section 1112 Statue for fees.

Guidance for Demonstration Projects

Demonstration projects are a way for communities to evaluate the impact of a roadway change, such as to improve walking, bicycling, transit access, public spaces, and traffic flow, without making a permanent, and often expensive, investment. The guidance document describes the options available, issues that need to be considered, the state approval processes, and provides links to resources with additional information. It provides an orientation on the topic and is not a design guide or standard.
