Any person, contractor, or public utility performing work within a county right of way or road easement needs an encroachment permit. Standard road easements are 60 feet wide (30 feet on both sides from the center of the roadway). The $50.00 permit fee for a residential encroachment permit will be waived for driveways, landscaping, and fencing, if the Road Department is notified during the planning phase.

A list of county-maintained roads can be found at: https://www.churchillcountynv.gov/DocumentCenter/View/16848/MASTER-Road-Inventory_012023. In general, the county does not maintain dirt roads and roads on private land.
No. The County Road Department receives no money from property taxes or registration fees. The Road Department is funded by local gas tax collections. This rate is $0.09 per gallon of gasoline. Taxes on diesel fuel are allocated to the state of Nevada and do not contribute to the maintenance of county roads.
