General Access Driveway Policy
Under the provisions and policies of Texas Administrative Code, Title 43, Chapter 11, Subchapter C, the department will issue access driveway permits to owners of property abutting state highways. The permitting process on highways on the state highway system within the jurisdiction of a municipality or eligible county (as defined in the Texas Administrative Code) may be transferred to the municipality or eligible county at their request and with approval by the department. Issuance of permits, construction and maintenance of these driveways should be in accordance with the department's Access Management Manual.
A completed Permit Form 1058 is necessary whenever new access driveways are constructed or existing access driveways are modified.
