Utilities Section

The Utilities Section, which is a part of the Right-of-Way Bureau, acts as the liaison between MDT and utility companies when these companies wish to locate facilities within MDT right-of-way and when utilities require relocation or modification because of conflicts with MDT projects. The Utilities Section provides guidance on issues and works directly with utility companies to determine relocation alignments and create agreements for cost sharing.

Permitting utility facilities within existing highway right-of-way is a function of MDT's 5 district offices. District personnel administer the review and approval process for Utility Occupancy, Common Use, and Encroachment Agreements and Permits.

Personnel in the Utilities Section can help you with general questions, and questions about forms and manuals used for utility placement within highway right-of way.
