Information for Utility Companies

Utility permits

Collin County requires a permit for all utilities* that are placed along or across Collin County roads. There is no charge for utility permits.

The guidelines for installing utilities* along or across Collin County roads are contained in the County Right-of-Way manual. These guidelines change as federal, state and Collin County laws and requirements change, therefore, only guidelines obtained directly from Collin County at the time the permit is issued will be in effect.

To obtain a permit, complete the form below and return it to Public Works with any additional information required. Permits may be faxed to 972-548-3754 or emailed to the address below.

* Telecommunications companies fall under additional State Laws. Contact Collin County Utility Construction Inspector for details.
