Barricade Permit Procedures

1. All restrictions require a barricade permit, this includes:

2. Contractors must use a barricade company that has been certified to work in the City of Glendale. (List)

3. A traffic control plan must be submitted at least three (3) working days prior to the start of the scheduled work.  Each plan must be accompanied by a traffic control plan application form.

4. Each plan will be reviewed and the lane-use fees will be assessed according to the restrictions shown on the plan and the dates on the information sheet.  Each plan will be assigned a permit number (example BAR: 12345).

5. The contractor or designed must take the approved plan and permit fee (see Transportation Service Fees) payment (if applicable) associated with the permit to the 2nd floor counter at City Hall; the permit will be issued.  This permit must be present at the work site at all times. 

6. Per the City of Glendale Barricade Ordinance, permit fees and review fees shall double if the request for permit is submitted less than three (3) business days in advance of the proposed commencement of the work or if a continual closure (twenty-four (24) hours) is approved. The Transportation Director or designee may grant time extension. Costs associated with a time extension are double the rates for barricade use permits.
