To build a new driveway that connects to any county road, you will need to first call the Highway Department and schedule an appointment for a site visit. The Road Superintendent’s office will help you create a correct driveway design and will check for any drainage problems that could possibly arise from connecting a driveway to the county road. Once the driveway design is approved, you will then be issued a permit to begin construction.
Construction of County Roads
If you are a developer, subdivision contractor, paving company, or other road constructor and you are planning on building a road or street that you want to be accepted as a county-maintained road, please call the Highway Department for approval prior to construction.
Personal Property on County Right-of-Ways
Personal property should not be left on the right-of-way of county roads. The Campbell County Highway Department must be able to manage the right-of-way for mowing, snow removal, and ditching. The county is not responsible for damage to any object placed on a county right-of-way that is not clearly visible to maintenance and mowing crews. Any obstructions located on the right-of-way of a county road must be removed for proper maintenance so the Highway Department can ensure safety for the Campbell County citizens and visitors who use these roads.
