If you plan on constructing a new commercial or residential access onto a county road, you are required to submit an entrance permit request form, called a Highway Permit to the Highway Department for approval before beginning construction.
If the access you propose is onto a state, municipality, or township roadway, you will need to contact those government officials prior to construction. See our Related Links page for links to IDOT and some area Peoria County municipalities.
