When building or construction projects involve the closing or obstruction of streets, alleys, or sidewalks, the construction company or contractor has to apply for an application with city officials that shows the amount of space the contractor will use. This is normally accompanied by a set of detailed drawings made to scale that show:
• dimensions of sidewalks
• location of trees and fire hydrants
• catch basins
• total width of street or alley and total width of pavement
There are many other requirements that cities and municipalities may impose on construction companies for permission to obstruct street access to motor vehicles or pedestrians. They include confining all materials used to obstruct the street to the actual portion that is allowed for this purpose and to prevent sand, dirt, and other materials or debris of any kind from being blown or otherwise moved to any other portion of the street.
The company receiving permission to obstruct a street or sidewalk will automatically assume liability arising out of work performed under the permit or in any number of other ways, including:
• failure to perform the obligations with respect to street maintenance
• failure to maintain warning devices
• any other use and occupancy of any sidewalk or walkway
The language of a street obstruction bond from www.bfbond.com is often strongly worded to ensure that the company with the permit required to close a street or sidewalk clears the city and its officials of any possible liability in this regard.
