All “Service Providers”, essentially utilities and telecoms, must annually register with the City of Cleveland, and fulfill additional requirements per City Ordinance. Violation or refusal to comply with the provisions of this ordinance may result in civil action by the City.
Jobsite Considerations for Projects Affecting Streets and Sidewalks
Permits are to be posted on the jobsite during working hours, and available for review on request by authorized city personnel. Construction areas must be protected and barricaded until they can be opened to pedestrian or vehicle traffic without damage. By City Ordinance, failure to secure a sidewalk and/or an obstruction permit may result in a stop work order, fines and penalties.
The City retains the right to adjust work hours based upon the impact that the project has on pedestrian and vehicular traffic flow. The Division of Traffic Engineering must approve a traffic plan prior to commencement of work.
The City reserves the right to close any construction project in progress indefinitely due to weather conditions. Special construction conditions apply to winter months.
An obstruction permit is required for repairs performed in the Central Business District and at all locations citywide which require obstruction of a main street.
