Permit requirements to install/erect temporary traffic control warning signs and other temporary traffic control
In North Carolina, utility companies and developers that need to work inside the DOT right of way must get an encroachment agreement from the district engineer. The applicant must submit a traffic control plan as part of that process. The traffic control plan can be as simple as a promise to follow the MUTCD to as complex as having a private engineering firm design it. It is up to the district engineer to approve the plan based on the type of facility where the work will occur (i.e., two-lane two-way, multilane, ADT, high-speed or low-speed). Once the district engineer is satisfied, the encroachment agreement is issued.
