Driveway Permit

Persons wanting to create a new driveway or widen an existing driveway along a Hardin County road must submit a Driveway Permit Application (PDF) to the Hardin County Engineer's Office. Tenants, please be sure to obtain your landlord's signature on your Driveway Application. The proposed site will be inspected by the maintenance superintendent. Specifications for driveway construction are available on the application.

Please note: If a contractor other than the County will be constructing your driveway or driveway extension, please also complete and submit a Work in the Right-of-Way Application.
