The Los Angeles Department of Transportation supervises the review of all temporary street, lane, and sidewalk closures. Temporary traffic control plans differ based on if they are less or more than 72 hours.
When working in San Francisco in the public right-of-way, you must apply for a Special Traffic Permit if you cannot comply with the construction regulations specified in the Blue Book.
You must first obtain an OB permit over the counter before blocking or obstructing any street parking, curb/gutter, sidewalk, or traffic lane. Approved Traffic Control Plan might be required.

- Public utility installations / Fiber installation
- Storm drain installation or connections
