TRN-10.03 - Parking, Lane, Sidewalk and Street Closure Permits

The purpose of this addition to administrative rule TRN-10.03 is:

1.   To clearly state the expectation of continuous permitting.

A permit is required for work in the public right of way, or for the closure of the public right of way to facilitate work on private property. A valid permit must be maintained throughout the duration of the impact to the right of way.

2.   To clearly state the consequences of a lapse in continuous permitting.

When a valid temporary street use permit is not maintained, the occupation of the right of way is in violation of TRN-10.03 and is subject to enforcement under the Right-of-Way Use Enforcement administrative rules (TRN-8.14).

•   Time spent in violation of TRN-10.03 is subject to retroactive permit fees, using the current temporary street use fee schedule, calculated from the day the occupation of the right of way became a violation.

•   Time spent in violation of TRN-10.03 may be subject to additional penalties beyond retroactive permit fees, stated in TRN-8.14.


The above changes to TRN-10.03 are currently open for public comment. Please send any comments or questions to The comment period will close on July 16, 2020.
