How long does it take to process an application and receive a permit?
If your application is found to be complete and plans found to be in compliance, permits are usually issued within five working days following receipt of the application.

Delays or rejection will be experienced if your application and/or plans are incomplete, including failure to provide the required, approved TxDOT permit.

The applicant will be notified by phone or e-mail when the permit is ready, then anyone instructed by the applicant, including the assigned contractor, may pick up the permit.
