NCDOT Roads

Any major encroachment on NCDOT roads in Raleigh requires an encroachment from NCDOT. If you have an NCDOT encroachment, you do not need one from the City of Raleigh. Once the NCDOT has granted encroachment approval, you can then apply for all permits for construction, and street, lane and sidewalk closures in Raleigh.
