Gates are often used to secure driveways, businesses, properties, and construction sites. A permit may be required.
To ensure fire or police vehicles can access your home or business during an emergency, you may need a permit to install a gate.
Detailed information on gate requirements can be found in the Manual of Design Guidelines and Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction Section 5-5 (PDF pg. 54) and Appendix A (begins at PDF pg. 68).
In addition to a gate permit, your project may require a site development permit. We recommend you contact us to verify the requirements for your property.
