County Highway Permits

All of the applications for permits are in a "PDF" format and once downloaded, can be viewed using Adobe Acrobat Reader. The application files may be large and, therefore, may take some time to download depending on the connection speed of your service provider. You may also request the application forms by contacting the Highway Department, in which case, the forms will be mailed or faxed to you. Applications may be mailed or faxed to Redwood County Highway Department at the address or fax number at the top of each permit. Please include your fax number on the application so the permit can be returned as soon as possible. Please note that no permit is valid until signed by the County Engineer or his designated representative.
