On November 27, 2007, the Oklahoma City Council amended Municipal Code Chapter 50 and added Section 50-13, which became effective on December 27, 2007. § 50-13 created a revocable permitting process for work within public right-of-way that obstructs a street or sidewalk.


Until a work zone permit application is approved by the City, any and all work or activity within public right-of-way that obstructs a street and/or sidewalk is unauthorized and all unauthorized closures, “for any reason other than an actual emergency or a procession escorted by a Police Officer” is a Class “b” offense, which carries with it a fine not exceeding $1,200.00 and/or up to six (6) months in jail.


If a work zone permit is needed, it is best to file it at least two (2) full working days in advance of the need. An application received at the end of business on Friday may not be approved until the end of business on the following Tuesday, provided that Monday is not a holiday observed by the City.


Contact the Traffic Management Division for more information or assistance.
