In the interest of allowing emergency vehicles, snow plows, etc., safe access to property, Washburn County has adopted the following minimum standards:
- Driveways must be twenty (20) feet wide, unobstructed into the driveway to a height of fifteen (15) feet.
- Driveways must have a turn around twenty (20) feet wide and forty (40) feet long within 100 feet of the building.
Driveway permits are required off all county highways from the Washburn County Highway Department.
Some townships also require driveway permits. Inquire at your township level.
