The location of all brace poles, anchors and anchor poles within the limits of the County Highway right of way shall be approved by the County Highway Engineer. Locations and distance from edge of roadway must be clearly marked on permit. No poles, anchors, anchor braces, or other construction shall be placed within the clear zone of the road. IV. In those instances in which a Utility is issued a Permit or Permits for construction on both sides of the County Highway right of way in a given area, such Permit is conditioned upon the Utility subsequently providing joint use to other Utilities upon reasonable terms mutually agreeable to the Utilities.

GENERAL

Except as otherwise permitted, utility construction and relocation on County Highway right of way shall not be commenced until an application for a Permit has been made and such Permit granted. The Permit sketch shall show the location of the proposed utility with reference to County Highway centerline. A copy of the sketch shall be provided for each copy of such Permit. II.

Any holes caused by stump removal shall be backfilled, the area leveled and all materials associated therewith disposed of outside the county highway right of way.
