Utility Occupancies

An applicant may obtain a Utility Occupancy License (Wire or Pipeline) through a formal application process. To initiate the process the applicant must fully complete the application form provided in the link below. Incomplete applications which do not include all necessary information will be rejected immediately. The completed application, a non-refundable $200 Application Fee and a non-refundable $500 Engineering Review Fee via check or money order made payable to Pennsylvania Northeastern Railroad, LLC (PN) is required for processing. It is recommended that a Permit to Enter application be submitted concurrently with the application for Utility Occupancy License.

Upon receipt of the application and fees, the real estate team will review the package for approval. Application does not guarantee approval. If the application is approved, a Utility License agreement will be drafted and forwarded to the applicant for signature. The partially executed agreement must be returned to the Real Estate Department accompanied by a check or money order for the first year rental payment and a $300 Document Preparation Fee. In addition you must submit relevant proof of insurance (outlined in the agreement) prior to execution on behalf of the railroad.

If access onto railroad property is required to obtain necessary information for the application then a Permit To Enter must first be obtained. A Permit to Enter is a separate application and can be found using the following link:

Accessing Property

Please allow up to 30 business days for processing from the date of receipt of the completed application. “Expedited Processing” is available and will reduce the processing time at an additional cost of $875 (due with the application). If expedited processing is required, then list “EXPEDITED” before Director of Real Estate in the address line.
