Time frame allowed for lane closure setup (e.g., 9:00am to 3:30pm)
North Carolina interprets lane closure times as:
– The lane cannot be closed until 9:00am, but the contractor could place drums or cones along the side of the road.
– Signs cannot be displayed until 9:00am but contractors can place a folded portable sign on the side of the road at the place it will be deployed.
These two rules allow the contractor to maximize work time without actually impeding traffic until 9:00am.
