How is an encroachment permit obtained?
In order to expedite the permit approval process, customers are strongly encouraged to contact the County or District staff and schedule a preliminary meeting before an application for permit is submitted. County and District contact information can be found in Appendix B of the Access and Roadside Management Standards.
Customers are required to submit encroachment permit applications electronically. SCDOT uses an automated system, EPPS, to accept, process, and manage permit requests and to issue Encroachment Permits.
SCDOT provides customers two options for submitting applications: Single-Use and Multi-Use.
