Does the Right of Way Management Division have my current insurance?  Am I already a Licensed Right of Way Contractor?

You can view the list of current Right of Way Contractor License holders here. To verify your Insurance status, check the Insurance Expiration column.

How is a Right of Way Contractor License obtained?

The following four documents must be provided:

  1. Bond
  2. Insurance
  3. Resolution of Authority
  4. Authorized Agent Form

Once you have given us these documents, our office will provide you with an invoice for $52.  Once the invoice is paid, our office will issue the License.

How long does a License remain active?

The License remains valid until either the Bond and/or Insurance (on file with our office) expire.

How is a Right of Way Contractor License renewed?

The renewal documentation will vary.  We may require current versions of all four documents described above.  The individual documents do NOT share expiration dates.  Documents must be emailed to rightofway@austintexas.gov.

How do I add a Right of Way Contractor to my permit?

You may only add a Right of Way Contractor to your permit if they have listed you on their Authorized Agent Form (AAF). 

Note to Right of Way Contractors: Organizations and individuals that you list on your AAF will be able to submit permit requests and/or pull permits using your Right of Way Contractor License.  The most recent version you file with us will replace previous versions.  This is why each version must be comprehensive.
