Contractors, citizens, and service providers wanting to temporarily (more than five minutes and less than 30 days) occupy a traffic lane, planting strip, sidewalk, or any other portion within the public Right-of-Way (ROW), must obtain a Right-of-Way Use Permit from CDOT.
Each request to occupy the ROW is considered on a case-by-case basis to ensure that there is no adverse impact to public safety. Additionally, all requests must comply with CDOT's
Work Area Traffic Control Handbook (WATCH).
In accordance with
City Council’s Adopted FY23 budget, Right-of-Way Use Permits will require a fee
to be paid prior to permit approval starting Early 2023. The fees will include
a non-refundable application fee and a daily fee. More details will be
available at the beginning of 2023.
