The excavator shall take appropriate measures to cause as little inconvenience as possible to the general public by proper routing of traffic through or around the construction area. The City may permit the closing of streets and alleys to all traffic for a period of time, if in its opinion it is necessary, and this shall be stated on the application form.
When conditions exist which require the manual direction or control of vehicular or pedestrian traffic, it shall be the responsibility of the excavator to provide an off-duty police officer or flagmen for as long as may be necessary to effect control. The number of officers or flagmen and the duration of their duty shall be determined by the City. (1968 Code §10-116; Ord. 74-56; Ord. 85-214; Ord. 01-42)
