Permits

INDOT Permits is pleased to announce it is going completely paperless!  As of October 1st, 2018, all permit applicants will be required to use INDOT’s Electronic Permitting System (EPS) when seeking a permit and making an electronic payment.  INDOT is working to modernize and increase productivity to better improve our service offerings, and EPS makes it easy to apply for and update a permit.  Utilizing the INDOT’s online system will allow customers to track and manage their permits, enable direct email access to track communications and provide a repository for all documents relevant to the permit. Once registered to use EPS, https://eps.indot.in.gov/, the applicant can just follow the instruction prompts for submitting the applications package.

All permit applications must be submitted electronically, however, certain exceptions will be allowed by law.


INDOT enables you to apply for permits online. Click on the links below for the appropriate INDOT permit.

Please be advised that certain permits will require a maintenance agreement to conduct work in INDOT's right-of-way. This process can take anywhere between 90 to 120 days. A permit will not be issued until there is a fully executed agreement in place. Contact your district permits manager as soon as possible for any questions and early coordination.
