(A) Traffic control and protection measures are required during construction. A traffic control plan shall be included within the engineering plans and specifications submitted to the LCDOT. Should adequate traffic control measures not be in place, a representative of the LCDOT has the authority, but not the duty, to halt the construction until such time as the traffic control measures are corrected.
(B) The first infraction will result in the halting of construction until such time as traffic control measures are corrected. The second infraction will result in the halting of construction for the remainder of that day. Traffic control measures must be established prior to the start of the next workday. Should there be a third infraction, the permit shall be revoked and there shall be a meeting with the permittee, resident engineer/person in charge, and LCDOT to discuss what measures will be taken to reinstate the permit.
(C) The LCDOT shall have the ability to assess a fine in accordance with § 90.033 of this chapter for any infraction of traffic control requirements.
(D) The resident engineer/person in charge shall notify the LCDOT Transportation Management Center (commonly named PASSAGE), of any upcoming lane closures (24 hours prior) and immediately when the lane is re-opened to traffic. Closures of a travel lane for permitted work will only be allowed between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on weekdays. Exceptions to this policy may be granted by the LCDOT Engineer of Traffic on a case by case basis through the permit review process. Temporary closures for emergency repairs, natural disasters, or other emergency conditions are exempt from these requirements.
(E) Parking or storage of vehicles, materials, or equipment within the county right-of-way will not be allowed unless otherwise specified in the permit documents.
