Major Access Permits


An access permit allows for the construction, maintenance, closure, and use of a driveway or street that provides State highway access for a lot, a site, lot subdivision or lot consolidation with frontages along the State highway system. It also gives the ability to use, maintain, repair, and perform replacement of a driveway or street with frontages along a State highway and/or site.

Property owners seeking traffic access to or from State highways or roadways that fall under the jurisdiction of the State must submit an access application to the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), Major Access Permits Unit through the Major Access Permit (MAP) E-Permitting portal.

Major Access E-Permitting is a web based, automated GIS-enabled application developed to manage, track, and document all aspects of the Major Access Permit process. MAP E-Permitting offers secured, tiered access for all users.

All improvements made to a state highway shall conform to the requirements found at N.J.A.C. 16:47 Appendix E
