Does Your Property Need Access to a Public Road? Call Trans Associates!
Property owners and developers must acquire Highway Occupancy Permits (HOP) when requesting access to state, municipal or county roads with a new or modified drive or roadway. Trans Associates assists our clients with acquiring HOP permits quickly and efficiently.
The process for obtaining an HOP typically begins with a traffic impact study (TIS.) A TIS determines the current and future impacts of traffic volume that may be generated by the proposed site accesses. The study involves data collection of current traffic levels and provides analysis and reporting on anticipated required improvements.
