Right of Way Permits

Right of Way


The Inver Grove Heights Engineering Department administers its right-of-way permits through an online application named ROWay, designed by First Scribe.

View the permit activity map and learn about excavations in or near your neighborhood.

Register with the city to do work within the right-of-way and to submit a right of way excavation or a right of way utility permit application.
