New Area Application across multiple Road Manager boundaries

When you add waypoint sets outside a single Road Manager boundary, a separate area application is required for each Road Manager. The NHVR Portal automates this process to save you time.

  1. Follow the steps above to create a new area application.
  2. Upon entering waypoint sets outside a single Road Manager boundary, a notification will appear asking you to complete the route planning (through all steps in the process) and then click Generate. This will make sure all of the permit information (from Steps 1-5) is copied into each individual Road Manager application, such as Attachments and Contact information.
  3. Complete all steps in Route Planning.
  4. Click Generate.
  5. The routes will be automatically separated according to Road Managers, and a draft permit application will be created for each.
  6. Navigate to Application Tracker to see the new applications. The new applications will have the original application ID as a reference. Open all of the associated applications and submit each one separately.

The original application you started, containing all routes will now act as a template (not able to be submitted). You can archive it or leave it as a draft for future use.
