ACCOMODATION OF UTILITY PLANT WITHIN THE RIGHTS OF WAY OF URBAN STREETS AND HIGHWAYS. MANUAL OF IMPROVED PRACTICE
The manual sets forth principles and practices under which utility facilities can be successfully accommodated within urban rights-of-way. These principles and practices can be characterized by five steps: (1) Enabling legislation to establish rights of local agencies to control use of the right-of-way; (2) provision of adequate staff and budget to protect the public's investment in its streets and highways; (3) establishment and implementation of adequate permit, inspection, and pavement restoration controls; (4) implementation of cooperation and coordination mechanisms and record systems among all major utilities; and (5) provision of accurate information to the field forces who excavate in the rights-of-way to allow them to work safely and protect existing utility plant. The manual and the companion report should be of valuable assistance to state and local highway agencies in cooperation with utility companies for making improvements to utility accommodation policies and practices.
