The Washtenaw County Road Commission is responsible for processing a wide range of right-of-way and transportation permits. The permitting process is outlined in the Procedures & Regulations for Permit Activities. A right-of-way permit is required for any work being performed in the road right-of-way. The statutory authority of WCRC to require compliance with permit requirements is predicated upon its jurisdictional authority and is set forth in various statutes.

Transportation permits are required for commercial vehicle traffic using county roads which exceed the size and/or weight limitations specified by law.  Please refer to the WCRC Truck Operator’s Map. All transportation permits must be submitted via See links below for more information.

Once a right-of-way permit has been issued, WCRC requires advance notice of work for inspection. Click here to submit the advance notice of work online.
