Notice of Proposed Adoption of Director's Rule
& Notice of Environmental Determination
Pursuant to SMC 3.12.020, SMC 15.04.035 and SMC Title 15, the Department of Transportation (SDOT) Street Use is proposing to adopt a Director's Rule (SDOT Rule 10-2015) updating standards for Pedestrian Mobility in and Around Work Zones. This revises the existing SDOT Director's Rule 1-2011. The revised rule clarifies sidewalk closure as a last resort, when needed to protect pedestrians, stipulates the manner in which protected access is to be implemented and limits the duration of closures to hours and days necessary to complete phases of work that impact access.
