Procedures, Permitting Process and Approvals for Right-of-Way Improvements
2.5 Right-of-Way Use Permits

Construction of private property frequently requires temporary use of the right of way for equipment and material storage, staging or other activities.  All use of the right of way requires a Street Use permit. 

When the right of way is used for these activities, the public’s access to the right of way is restricted resulting in limitations on pedestrian, bike and vehicle mobility.  SDOT’s goal is to minimize these impacts on mobility.  As a disincentive to limiting the public’s mobility, SDOT charges escalating fees based on the amount of area occupied, the duration of the impacts and the type of street impacted.  

Refer to CAM 2115 for more information regarding use permits and fees.
