Curb Cut

What Is It?

You need a curb cut permit when you make a new driveway in an existing sidewalk curb. The curb cut permit is often part of a building construction permit. The City of Lincoln oversees curb cut permits, because curbs are on the City right-of-way. However, we review, approve, and issue the permits.    


When you design your curb cut size and location, consider:

Tree and power pole clearances

The size and number of curb cuts allowed  on your property

The required distance between your curb cuts and those on nearby property


What It Isn't

A curb cut permit does not address parking and car storage or location, size, and number of parking spots.


How Much Does It Cost?

We charge as basic $50 for each curb cut on all types of property.
