Right-of-Way Widths

Because Right-of-Way widths may differ from street-to-street, and there are times that the ROW line is located several feet behind the sidewalk or curb, it is recommended that you contact the Engineering Division at 801-629-8990 to verify ROW location and width. 

Who Can Work in the Right-of-Way?

Only Licensed Professional Contractors, who are insured and bonded with Ogden City, and who have a valid Engineering Permit may work in the Ogden City Right-of-Way.  See the Permits page for more information.

UDOT Right-of-Way

UDOT Permit: On State Roads, all work performed in the roadway (from back of curb to back of curb) requires UDOT approval and a UDOT Permit, and MUST conform to UDOT standards.  Contractors must obtain UDOT Approval for all traffic control placed in a State Road.

City Permit: All work performed in the UDOT Right-of-Way (from back of curb to Right-of-Way line) requires an Engineering Permit from Ogden City, and MUST conform to Ogden City Standards.

Both Permits Required: If your work takes place in both the roadway AND the city-maintained portion of the Right-of-Way, AND/OR your work involves a city utility buried beneath the roadway, then permits and inspections from BOTH agencies are required.
