Excavation Permits

An Excavation Permit is required for all digging within the rights of way maintained by the City of Byrnes Mill. This includes new driveway aprons that attach to city streets. This does not include private roadways on private property, but does include their connection within street rights of way.  Such aprons are considered private attachments to the City's Street Network and therefor do not require inspection or meet City street pavement thickness requirements. Contractors are responsible to the property owner or companies that hire them for this work. Excavations within County roads or State areas are handled by those jurisdictions.

An Application for Excavation Permit is the first step in the process.  You may download the form or apply online.
