What is a state highway connection?
A state highway
connection is a driveway, public/private road or street, or recreational trail located between property that abuts state highway right-of-way and the highway itself.
Why do I need a permit for a connection?
Under Wisconsin Statute
s. 86.07(2)(a), any work in the highway right-of-way requires a permit from the maintaining authority of that highway. For state highways, WisDOT requires a connection permit. Wisconsin Administrative Code
Trans 231 has additional requirements on connection permits.
Is there a cost for a permit?
There is no cost to apply for a permit. However, there may be costs associated with building the connection. See the
background page for more information.
