Right-of-Way Management and Permitting

The Department of Public Service Right of Way Permit Counter is located on the first floor of the Michael B. Coleman Government Center, 111 N. Front St.  

The Government Center includes a street-level concourse to better serve our customers. The “one-stop shop” consolidates four City departments: Building & Zone Services, Public Service, Development and a portion of Public Utilities. The central location creates operational efficiency for the City and streamlined conveniences for residents requiring assistance from multiple departments in one visit.

You may still apply for Right of Way and other permits through the Citizens Access Portal at https://portal.columbus.gov/permits
