In reference to your response here and the additional attached:
Street Use is charged with and does enforce the Director’s Rule – starting with applying it to approved conditions for work (including traffic control requirements, hours of operation for impacts, etc.) during the permitting process. In the case of unpermitted work, we are unfortunately left in the undesirable situation of reacting to it as we encounter it. Response can also be complicated by conditions at time of Inspection – which do not always match conditions that may be encountered at all times.
Inspections staff was dispatched to evaluate the conditions described in this area. Unpermitted work was addressed and cleared at that time, and to the best of the Inspector’s ability to determine at the time, remaining impacts were compliant with permit conditions.
Daily inspection of specific sites in not typical given our resource limitations and workload. However, given the issues in play here I certainly agree that elevated attention is needed, and will work with my staff to ensure both an added level of auditing and review of area traffic control/pedestrian provisions, and elevated monitoring of potential unpermitted work that may be popping up here at this time.
