Access Permits

An Access Permit is required for any new residential driveway, commercial access, public or private street, or agricultural field entrance which connects to an Anoka County roadway.

If a change occurs in the use of a property that is adjacent to a county road, Anoka County has the right to review access to the county road and to require a new permit.

A Site Review must be performed by the Anoka County Traffic Department, prior to the issuance of an Access Permit. Submit a written request and detailed sketch to the Anoka County Highway Department, ATTN: Traffic Department.

Applicants must apply in person, by appointment only. For more information and to schedule an appointment, please call 763-324-3176.
