Transportation Online Permitting System

This online system enables home owners, tenants, and businesses alike to apply for the specific type of public space occupancy, construction, excavation, annual or rental permit required for use of the public space within the District of Columbia. Whether you need to occupy metered and unmetered curbside parking, sidewalk, alley or travel lane areas for your activity or construction related work, TOPS will work for you. If you are a developer or are in need of a zoning plan review through the Development Review Branch, TOPS will work for you as well. Once registered, the system makes it easy for you to log into your account anytime to apply for a permit, edit your application, upload plans electronically, or check the status of your application.

Launch the Transportation Online Permitting System.
