Protecting the public right-of-way during construction is one of the primary responsibilities of the Public Works Department. All work performed in the public right-of-way requires an Encroachment Permit of one of the following types:
Examples of work requiring an Encroachment Permit include:
During the peak shopping season between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the City of Campbell enforces a moratorium on non-emergency street construction in the vicinity of Downtown Campbell.
A number of City sponsored / recognized events occur throughout the year in Downtown Campbell, and construction hours may be limited leading up to those events. Most events take place on the weekend, so any work in the public right-of-way should be buttoned up on the Friday before said event. Contact Public Works Inspection at (408) 866-2150 regarding any upcoming working hour restrictions.
The City also enforces a five year moratorium on cutting trenches into newly resurfaced streets. For more information regarding the City's Policy on Street Cut Moratorium, please visit the City's Pavement Maintenance Program webpage.
