|Welcome to the Inspection Request web application used by Baton Rouge
Department of Public Works
Permits and Inspections division.
This web page is intended to help the citizen or contractor who has already
received a permit for a project, and now needs to have a portion of that project
inspected before moving on to the next phase.
Entering the data over the web is intended to be easier than making a phone call
to request the inspection, and waiting on hold when the office is busy, and more
reliable than just leaving a message.
After entering and submitting your information below and on the following page,
you will be sent an email confirming that your request has been received. Upon
processing the request, the DPW Inspection office will send you another email
notifying you of the date of the scheduled inspection.
Regarding times: Inspection requests made before four p.m. will be scheduled
for the following working day, or the same day, workload permitting. Requests
made after four p.m. will be scheduled the following working day, workload
If requesting a partial inspection, you must note the specific type and
location. Also, if pass codes, combinations, or security codes need to be
entered at the inspection site by DPW personnel in order to get access, you must
enter that information. Please refrain from indicating in the comment fields
what time the inspectors should arrive, since we are unable to schedule specific
Thank you and we hope this helps improve your use of the Inspections process.
