Special Events Permit Application Information
There are many types of Special Events. They include parades and processions, races and tours, rest area coffee breaks, and placement of banners and decorations.
In order to use state highway right of way for a special event the Permittee must make arrangements to accommodate the traveling public and must also obtain insurance to protect the State from the additional liability imposed by using the highway for the event.
Accommodation of the traveler often calls for extensive traffic control. The Permittee must contract with a qualified Traffic Control Company who will design a plan for placement of signs and other devices to direct the driver through the area safely.
General Liability Insurance in an amount to be determined by the Department, must name the State of Arizona and the Arizona Department of Transportation as additional insured. Evidence of this insurance should be provided when submitting the Special Event application. This requirement may be waived only if the event will pose no additional liability to the State.
Special Event Permit Forms
Application for a Special Event should be submitted to the Department 60 days prior to scheduled event.
