In April 2007, the City of Wilmington amended Chapter 42 of the City Code, Right-of-Way Management, and adopted the Underground Facilities Coordination Manual in an attempt to increase the service life of the City’s pavement network.

This amendment, enacted through Ordinance 07-002, requires all contractors and public utility agencies to obtain a Roadway Cut Permit from the Department of Public Works (DPW) in advance of performing an excavation within a City-owned street.

Visit the City of Wilmington Online Permitting System for more information and to access the permit application process.
