Any time you propose to work in the City of Grapevine rights-of-way, public easements, or other City of Grapevine owned property, a permit is required. Article IV: Management of Public Rights-of-Way of the City of Grapevine Code of Ordinances provides that a permit shall be obtained for installation, inspection or repair of utilities within the City right-of-way and public easements before construction begins.
The City of Grapevine has public utilities within the TXDOT rights-of-way, and therefore a City permit, in addition to the TXDOT permit, will be required for any proposed facilities which are to parallel or cross them.
You may call the Grapevine Public Works/Engineering Department (817.410.3146) or send an email for information regarding plats, rights-of-way, or City easements.
If you elect to use email, please put the utility for which you are working, and the service address, only, in the subject line. IE: ATMOS - 200 S. Main St. Use the body of the email for additional information, and add a PDF for added routing clarity. Please do not imbed aerials or images in the document as there is limited City inbound and outbound e-mail capacity.
Most plats and associated construction plans, and capital projects are available in PDF format. If you will define your project in an email with the Utility Owner, type of work to be done, the beginning address and ending address (or just ending address if all work is on one lot) and a PDF map showing the location and route if applicable, the appropriate information will be set up in a Sharepoint Folder, usually within two days.
A secure link to the Sharepoint folder for information exchange will be provided with a 30 day expiration

The application and three sets of plans, including three copies of the approved TxDOT permit, if applicable, are required to be submitted with the permit application. Prior to the execution of the permit, the applicant's contractor is to have current insurance on file with the City of Grapevine Public Works/Engineering Department, with the City listed as an additional insured. Required insurance minimums are found at the end of the governing ordinance: Article IV: Management of Public Rights-of-Way
Delays or rejection will be experienced if your application and/or plans are incomplete, including failure to provide the required, approved TxDOT permit.
The applicant will be notified by phone or e-mail when the permit is ready, then anyone instructed by the applicant, including the assigned contractor, may pick up the permit.
In the project area, all wastewater, water, drainage, and City owned telecom facilities are to be ‘potholed’ at 100’ intervals, and at each crossing. Each service or lateral is to be uncovered at each crossing. Paint spotting is provided by the City of Grapevine. Potholing equipment, i.e. vac trucks, and repair is to be provided by the Contractor.
In the event a line cannot be identified by ordinary means in a timely manner, the City of Grapevine will identify said line at no charge to the contractor, but the repairs are at the expense of the Contractor.
