City of Colorado Springs / City Engineering / Permits, Applications and Fees / Excavation Permits

Excavation Permits

 

  • Current Excavation Permit Fee Schedule

  • Excavation permits are to be obtained for any work done in the public right-of-way and work must be performed by a licensed, insured, and bonded excavation contractor.  General contractor licenses do not cover work in the right-of-way.

  • Permits can be applied for in two ways:

    • Applications for excavation permits can be obtained in person from the City Engineering Inspections office located at 2880 International Circle, Suite 200-1. The office is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with a closure for lunch from 12-12:30 p.m.  Staff can be contacted at (719) 385-5977. 

    • Applications can be obtained online by clicking here.  Please call (719) 385-5977 to set up a password for access to our online system if you are a new user.

  • Upon receipt of the application, City Engineering Inspections will usually issue an excavation permit within 72 hours (not including weekends and holidays). 

  • A Barricade Plan is required to receive a permit.  A plan can be obtained from a book available from Traffic Engineering.  The phone number is (719) 385-5908.

  • The permit and Barricade Plan are to be on site during the excavation.  Non-compliance could result in the site being shut down.
