Construction of Driveways and Culverts on County Easements and Right of Ways

Fort Bend County has updated requirements for obtaining a permit for the construction of driveways and culverts on county easements, right of ways and drainage ditches. The resident will be responsible for purchasing the culvert and the county will provide equipment, labor and material for backfill for all installations.

The process begins with the resident completing a application or providing the information to our Request For Service Center specifying the applicant's name, physical address of the jobsite, phone number, etc... The location will be visited and the appropriate pipe size determined. The resident receives the completed application with pipe size. It is then the responsibility of the resident to deliver/mail payment in the form of a Cashiers Check / Money Order for the purchase of a Permit. This permit is valid for 6 months of the date issued.

Driveways and culverts that have been permitted by Fort Bend County require inspection during and after construction.
