Permits shall be void if the excavation has not begun within 30 calendar days of the start date specified in the permit, if the excavation is not prosecuted diligently to its conclusion, or if the excavation, including restoration, has not been completed within the specified duration; provided, however, that the Director, at his or her discretion, may issue extensions to the start date, the duration of excavation, or both upon written request from the permittee. Such written requests must explain why the work could not be commenced on the start date, completed in the approved number of calendar days, or both; shall specify the additional number of calendar days required to complete the work; and shall be accompanied by applicable fees specified in Subarticle IV. All requests to modify the start date of an excavation shall be made at least five (5) calendar days prior to the excavation start date. All requests to modify the duration of the excavation shall be made at least five (5) calendar days prior to the permit expiration date. Any extension that the Director grants may be subject to additional special conditions, including, but not limited to, conditions that ensure timely completion and coordination of the project. The Director shall not grant requests for extensions to the start date after the permitted start date nor shall the Director grant requests for extensions to the duration of the excavation after the permit expiration date.
