Roadway jurisdiction dictates which agency you would contact for a permit. There are 3 roadway agencies in the City of Roseville: Roseville, MN / DOT or Ramsey County. Please consult the Roadway Jurisdiction Map (PDF) to determine the jurisdiction of the right-of- way you are going to be doing work in.
