Do I need a permit to install a driveway on a County Road?

Yes. A permit is required to install a driveway on a County Road. To receive a permit for any proposed work, you must first submit a Section 136 Permit application form (PDF) to the County Highway Superintendent, along with any insurance certificates that may be required by the County of Cortland.

The Superintendent will then review the proposed work, and may issue a permit. After initial review, the Superintendent may require detailed plans be submitted for the proposed work prior to issuing a permit. It is the sole responsibility of the applicant to submit any plans required by the Superintendent. The Section 136 Permit application form can be mailed to the Superintendent at the following mailing address: Cortland County Highway Department, 60 Central Avenue, Cortland, NY 13045, Attn: Section 136 Permit.

If an insurance policy and certificate is required, it shall meet the following minimum requirements: Cortland County Insurance Requirements (PDF)
