This permit, called a "street cut permit," is required for work in the County Right-of-Way or easements. It typically involves construction activities where contractors need to obstruct all or part of the county road to perform their work.
Contractors must obtain a permit, provide proof of a permit bond, maintain traffic control and restore the road to its original condition (or better) after their utility work is complete. The permit requires a two-year warranty of the road repairs.
Traffic control plans (TCPs) are required for all right-of-way use and construction permits. Plans must be consistent with the most recent edition of the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). The MUTCD and other traffic guidelines can be obtained from this Colorado Department of Transportation webpage. Traffic control plans must be approved by the engineering inspector before permit approval. Minor work activities, such as closing a sidewalk or a single lane of residential (local) street, can be addressed with the following sample traffic control plans. Remember, access for pedestrians and bicycles must be maintained and clearly shown on any traffic control plan.
More detailed plans, including methods for handling traffic (MHT), will be necessary for complex, phased projects. Road closures are not allowed in Jefferson County without prior written approval from the engineering inspector.
Sample control plans are available at the bottom of this page.
