Right-Of-Way (ROW) or "public way" means all property in which the City has any form of ownership or title, including easements, and which is held for public roadway or utility purposes, regardless of whether or not any roadway or utility physically exists or whether it is used, improved or maintained for public use.
Unless exempt from permit requirements in Spokane Valley Municipal Code (SVMC) 22.130.060, a ROW permit is required of any person or company who performs construction work or otherwise engages in activity within existing City ROW, or on City-owned infrastructure.
Traffic control plan (TCP) is required for the closure of more than 50 percent of the width of any street or if working on an arterial street. The City has pre-approved the use of TCPs issued by WSDOT and the City, which can be found below:
