SDOT Street Use Inspection

All permits issued by Street Use are subject to inspection. Street Use Inspectors are responsible for enforcing the rules and regulations of the City of Seattle, such as permit conditions, Traffic Control Manual, Ordinances, City Specifications, and the Street and Sidewalk Pavement Opening Policy. This is to ensure that all construction, safety, and accessibility requirements of the permit are met as approved.

If you have questions about when an inspection is required be sure and contact an inspector. The inspector can answer questions or meet with you to help smooth the permitting and inspection process for your project or event.

Working in the right-of-way without a permit can result in fines, removal of unpermitted work, and doubled permit fees.

Please call the Street Use main line (206-684-5283) for any questions.
