PERMIT PLAN REVIEW
LADOT’s Permit Plan Review Section reviews temporary traffic control plans (including temporary signal plans) for durations of 72 hours or longer, and restoration striping and signal plans for permanent installation.
 
Temporary traffic control plans are typically designed to provide for the safe and efficient movement of road users through and around work zones for large projects that require the long term use of the City’s right-of-way, mainly consisting of street, lane and sidewalk closures.
 
Restoration striping and signal plans may be required due to street widening and street improvements for private development as part of the City’s planning approval process,  In these cases, the private development would need a B-Permit issued by the Department of Public Works/Bureau of Engineering to construct these street improvements.
