Driveway Access on County Right of Way
Washington County currently has a procedure regarding driveway access on a county maintained right of way. There is no fee for this service but a permit (pdf), permit (word doc) must be submitted, and rules followed to be allowed. Please be aware all culverts are to be corrugated galvanized metal pipe, of the size we determine.
If submitting a permit we have a brief description, which should help the process. Please be advised the LAND OWNER must sign the permit.
Please sign and return your permit with a simple map of the property location, (identifying marks, i.e. barns, color of house, gate, neighbor…) where the culvert will be installed. Remember to include a daytime phone number on the permit. Also, please be aware that we need the area staked as soon as possible. Place a stake on each side of the area where you want the culvert placed. We will not send a representative out to determine the size unless the area is staked.
After we have determined the size of culvert needed, we will contact you with this information. Once you have made your purchase of the culvert please notify our office of the vendor that is handling your culvert. We do not pick up culverts, so we will contact the local supplier for delivery when we are able to set the culvert. You may deliver the culvert yourself, however, the County will not be responsible for stolen or damaged culverts waiting to be set. For your convenience we have listed some of the local suppliers in Brenham.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 979-277-6275, 7:30 to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday. Our fax number is 979-277-6276.
