5.13 Acceptance/Warranty Procedures

Once informed by the Permittee that all the work is complete, an SDOT Inspector will perform an acceptance inspection of the project. When there are no unresolved issues at this acceptance inspection, the project will be accepted as "complete".  If applicable, the SDOT inspector will then notify the DPD Inspector that the Permittee has complied with the Street Use requirements. A one-year bond period commences from the project acceptance date. The DPD Inspector may then issue a Certificate of Occupancy, or a temporary Certificate of Occupancy, whichever is applicable.

All surety bonds for street right-of-way improvements including landscaping and GSI elements are kept for a year to ensure that all improvements retain functionality during that period. After one year, the SDOT Inspector returns to the project site to inspect for vegetation distress and any apparent workmanship shortcomings that qualify as a safety hazard to pedestrian and vehicle traffic.  If the area is safe for public use, then the bond is released and the project considered closed.
