Excavation Permit Application

 Step 1 of 1

Application Process. Complete and submit this form when requesting an excavation permit. Staff will process the application and send an invoice for applicable fees once approved. A permit will be issued and sent to applicant upon receipt of payment. 

New Construction or Multi-Family, Commercial or Industrial Renovation projects. The E-Plan Project # will be needed when completing this application. 

Lane Reductions & Road Closures. At least seventy-two (72) hours* before work commences, submit an application for the street closure, lane reduction and any associated detours necessary to complete the work at www.davenportiowa.com/roadwork.  The seventy-two hour timeframe is a minimum, when possible requests can, and should, be submitted seven (7) to ten (10) days in advance.

All street closures and lane reductions are to be removed immediately after the work is complete.

Failure to follow this process will result in fines ranging from $100 to $500 each day a violation exists.  The City has
the right to, and will issue, a Notice and Order to Stop Work when necessary.  

Repeated failure to comply with this procedure may impact the ability to receive approval for subsequent applications permits.

The party placing street closures and lane reductions is responsible to provide notification to affected property owners verbally
or in writing, unless otherwise impacted by an emergency repair need, at least twenty-four (24) hours in advance of the closure or lane reduction.
