The Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) is authorized to promulgate rules regarding highway operations in the City pursuant to Section 2903(b) of the City Charter. The rules that DOT is seeking to amend are contained within Chapter 2 of Title 34 of the Rules of the City of New York, relating to its “Highway Rules.”

The purpose of the proposed rule is to clarify the language in section 2-07 and to revise section 2-11 of the Highway Rules to clarify existing requirements and to establish new requirements relating to street openings and excavations. More specifically, the following changes are being proposed:

 Section 2-11(e)(10)(v) is amended by clarifying the height at which signs should be placed by permittees.

 Section 2-11(e)(10)(vi) is amended by clarifying requirements for skid-resistant plates.

 Section 2-11(e)(10)(vii) is amended by clarifying the requirement that all signs must be removed when work is completed.

 Section 2-11(e)(12)(iv) is amended by changing the requirement for roadway openings.

 Section 2-11(e)(12)(xiii) is amended by adding the requirement that the final completed wearing course surface must be without any defects.

 Section 2-11(f)(4)(ii) is amended by adding base installation as another phase of the work

The proposed rule also includes plain language and other minor changes to section 2-07 identified during the retrospective rules review conducted by the Mayor’s Office of Operations with the City’s rulemaking agencies, the Law Department, and the Office of Management and Budget.
