The City Right-of-Way

The City Right of Way diagram

Right-of-Way Areas


The Right-of-Way (ROW) area includes city streets, curb and gutter, park strips, and sidewalks (where present), and most often extends 6-12 inches past the edge of the sidewalk.

Because Right-of-Way widths may differ from street-to-street, it is recommended that you contact the Engineering Division at 801-629-8990 to verify ROW location and width. 

The City ROW is also where most utility services are buried.  Because of this, all digging or concrete work done in the Right-of-Way must be marked by Blue Stakes and performed under permit by a licensed contractor who is insured and bonded with the city.  See the Permit Information page for more information.
