Construction street use permit

For other street occupancies on City property that are not construction related, you may need a temporary street occupancy permit

Construction street use permits authorize the use of the street right-of-way including roadways, sidewalks, boulevards, and air spaces above.

New buildings that require shoring, excavation, hoarding (a fence or barrier between a construction site and public space), or scaffolding into City property need to apply for a construction street use permit.

Construction projects that impact public property other than shoring, excavation, hoarding, or scaffolding may also require a construction street use permit. Some of these may include work on sidewalks, traffic lanes, rear lanes, bus lanes, bike lanes, and boulevards. Contact Street Use Review for confirmation.
