As the City of Chicago and State of Illinois have enacted measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT), Division of Infrastructure Management (DIM) reminds its stakeholders—including utility providers, construction companies, locators, and project managers—that public way management is an essential function. As such, DIM intends to operate its core work groups—OUC, Permitting, 811 Chicago, and Public Way Enforcement—in accordance with measures proposed by public health officials. To ensure that work in the public right of way proceeds in an effective, efficient, and safe manner, DIM will continue to require companies planning to excavate in the public right of way to obtain a permit and a dig ticket from CDOT prior to starting work. However, to accommodate COVID-19 mitigation measures, DIM asks users to adhere to the following procedures.
By adhering to the guidelines above, companies working in the public way should be able to continue their work without overly taxing the resources of other public way stakeholders. CDOT will notify stakeholders if its services are further affected by COVID-19.
