CONSTRUCTION EASEMENT AREA: That area lying between the project right-of-way limits and the platted street limits within which the City, by concurrence in the establishment of the project right-of-way lines, will permit the State to enter to perform all necessary construction operations.
ENCROACHMENT: Any building, fence, sign or any other structure or object of any kind (with the exception of utilities and public road signs), which is placed, located or maintained in, on, under or over any portion of the project right of way or the roadway right of way where no project right-of-way line has been established.
PERMISSIBLE ENCROACHMENT: Any existing awning, marquee, advertising sign or similar overhanging structure supported from a building immediately adjacent to the limits of the platted street where there is a sidewalk extending to the building line and which does not impair the free and safe flow of traffic on the highway; the permissive retention of overhanging signs is not to be construed as being applicable to those signs supported from poles constructed outside the project right-of-way line and not confirmed by adjacent buildings.
