(a)   Except as otherwise provided in this chapter or by other law or ordinance, when the public is endangered by reason of any construction, alteration, addition, repair or excavation, or when a hazard exists because of the condition of a building or structure or because of an existing excavation, a suitable barricade shall be provided along any public thoroughfare affected.  If a barricade shall prevent sufficient passageway on the sidewalk, a temporary walk or bridge, if necessary, shall be constructed and maintained as provided for in Sections 1452.04 through 1452.06.
   (b)   Fences, barriers and other temporary structures, located on public thoroughfares, shall be constructed so as to not obstruct vision unnecessarily at street intersections.
