For services crossing paved county owned roadways, can the asphalted roadway surface be cut open to install the utility?
- 8 August 2023
No, open road cuts are generally not allowed on paved roadways unless the existing roadway is in poor condition. Right-Of-Way evaluates poor condition claims on a case-by-case basis. All road crossings must be conducted by directional drilling or jack and boring at a minimum depth under pavement of 42”. In the event that boring cannot be utilized, you must show on the construction drawings all details as to why the boring method could not be utilized. JETTING is prohibited.
