Sidewalk inspection permit

You must get a sidewalk inspection permit before doing any sidewalk repairs.


Before doing any sidewalk work, follow these steps to get a sidewalk inspection permit:

  1. Complete the online application on the Roway system. First-time users in this system will be required to create a login. 
  2. After your sidewalk construction permit is processed in RoWay, you will receive an email with an attachment from Minneapolis Sidewalk Inspections.
  3. Your permit fee is based on the scope of your work for your project. Please follow the instructions on where to send your fee. Do not send your permit fee to the Sidewalk Inspections Department.
  4. Once your fee payment has been processed by the Finance Department of the City of Minneapolis, you will receive your Sidewalk Construction Permit (via email).
