Are they Road  access and Driveway the same ?

No.

Our interest is only Road access

Driveway is located between road access and garages (example).

Road access is much shorter and is located from the edge of the road towards to the property.

The most common road access for residential area is 5 feet.

The role of the road accesses is to stabilize and preserve roads in order to provide public with the highest possible level of service on Pueblo County road network .

Existing access

In the case of an existing access when official records about the project do not exist, access inspections will be performed.

If you are applying for the registration of Existing Access Permit for access onto a Pueblo County maintained road please submit the following:

 

  1. APPLICATION FOR EXISTING ROAD ACCESS PERMIT  – filled out in its entirety and signed (with preferred contact information)
  2. A PLOT PLAN (drawn to scale) showing all existing accesses, distances of road accesses from edge of property, width of the accesses, the property boundary, road name, all existing and proposed buildings/improvements, and road right-of-way location.
  3. Provide Routing number if applicable ( Routing# 21-XXXXX).

 

  • NOTE:  At the time of application, the address and name of the owners must be clearly marked on site.

 

There are three possible outcomes:

 

  1. Access is built according to Pueblo county standards.
  • After you send required documents (application and plot plan) and inspection is done, official data regarding your access will be created and your Project Routing / CO will be signed.

  • After you send required documents (application and plot plan) and inspection is done, you will receive the note from instructions and a specification of the work required to bring the access up to Pueblo County standards.
  • Official data regarding your access will be created.
  • As stormwater flow is not compromised or Minor deviations from the standard occur on site, your Project Routing / CO will be signed and provided letter from this office becomes mandatory condition for any future development or project on site.
