Public Works Department Announces Sidewalk Closure Policy

The City of Omaha Public Works Department would like to announce that an updated Sidewalk Closure Policy has been released.  This policy, dated March 11, 2020, was completed to ensure our citizens have a safe path along city sidewalks while construction work is being performed.

The policy establishes the requirements, procedures, standards, and methods by which construction companies, utility companies, private contractors, and other entities will be required to provide access to city sidewalks while adjacent work is being conducted.  These requirements will provide additional security to pathways while sidewalk work or other construction is being completed to provide greatest accessibility to all modes of travel.

For more information, please see our policy or contact the Public Works Department at (402) 444-5220.
