GCA in Opposition to Proposed DOT Rule on Street Excavations

The NYC Department of Transportation has proposed a new rule that will fight excessive street markings. The new rule will amend Title 34, chapter 2, section 2-11(c) (1) of the New York City Rules to require permittees to specifically identify an area to be excavated and restrict utility mark-outs to the specified area of excavation. On August 17 the GCA testified in opposition to the opposed rule, debating the new rule will increase costs and will have a negative impact on the public. The GCA suggested that the Department of Transportation work with the utilities and construction industry to develop an alternate solution.
