It is ADOT's responsibility to maintain a high level of service and degree of safety on all state and federal highways under its control. The purpose of this policy is to consolidate the policies and procedures adopted by ADOT, Intermodal Transportation Division, for the accommodation of utilities on highway rights of way. All utility installations above and below ground are regulated by ADOT through the establishment and enforcement of the policies contained herein.
Many of ADOT's design consultants are being asked to coordinate utility, design and construction issues for highway projects. This guide
is intended to provide the consultant designer with helpful hints and advice on how to coordinate utilities on ADOT projects and ultimately write a Utility Clearance Letter.
