Utilities, Railroads, and Agreements

Utilities, Railroads, and Agreements (URA) provide centralized review, technical, and coordinative services for statewide projects and initiatives involving utilities, railroads, and agreements. We ensure compliance with consistent application of utility accommodation, agreement, and railroad policy.

We provide technical guidance and training on agreement development, utility policy, and railroad project coordination.
Utility permits and franchise information as well as guidelines and resources can be found on the Utilities - Permits and Franchises page. 

Our WSDOT Railroad Liaison provides direct support to regions and other HQ offices with highway-railroad projects.

If you are looking for active interlocal agreements, please visit the Interagency, Maintenance, Railroad & Utility Agreements page.
