Proposed Rules Content: 

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.

STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE

 

 

Pursuant to §§ 1043 and 2903 (b) of the New York City Charter, the Commissioner of Transportation is authorized to promulgate rules regarding maintenance of public roads, streets, highways, parkways, bridges and tunnels.

 

The City currently operates the Adopt-a-Highway Program, which offers civic-minded individuals, groups, and companies an opportunity to enhance New York City's highways by “adopting” segments of the highways and adjacent areas. Through this program, volunteers and sponsors provide certain maintenance services along the City's highways. Signs placed at the beginning of the “adopted” areas acknowledge the volunteers and sponsors. These maintenance services and beautification projects along designated highway routes help maintain the quality of life for local residents and businesses.

 

The purpose of the rule is to provide guidelines for the continuation of the Adopt-a-Highway Program. Specifically, the rule:

(1)  describes how the Department administers and coordinates the provision of maintenance services by volunteers and sponsors in order to reduce litter and graffiti, and to provide necessary tree trimming, sweeping, mowing, planting of flowers or trees, and other landscape maintenance along designated highway routes within the City;

(2)  delineates the application and permitting process for individuals to adopt segments of the highway;

(3)  details the signs installed to identify those volunteers or sponsors performing such activities on particular segments of the City’s highways;

(4)  describes the general requirements for participants in the Adopt-a-Highway Program, including qualifications, agreements, permits, levels of service of adopted segments, insurance and indemnification requirements, safety, and signage.
