Permit Plan Review

Any extensive physical change to the city’s streets requires a permit issued by the Department of Public Works, Bureau of Engineering.  Typical changes include street, alley and sidewalk widening, traffic signal improvements and traffic lane additions that are part of public improvements or private development projects.  As part of those changes, the Permit Plan Review Section reviews and oversees the restoration traffic signal, geometric (signs and striping) plans. 
In addition, any temporary street, lane and sidewalk closure of long duration (72 hours or longer) require a permit from Bureau of Street Services (BSS).   BSS requires the review and acceptance temporary traffic control plans by the B-Permit Section.  
Plan Check Process
The Permit Plan Review Section requires a first submittal meeting for all temporary traffic control, traffic signal, and geometric plan submittals.  The meeting allows the plan check engineer to understand the project requirements, development layout and impact, and project timelines.
