Chicago Roadway Construction Moratoriums

$0 / year

This dataset shows the Chicago roadway construction moratoriums. Moratoriums are established by the Department of Transportation as a method of protecting reconstructed or repaved roadways within the boundaries of the city.

Categories: ,

By having access to this Moratorium list in advance, contractors or utilities with projects that require excavation of roadways can more effectively plan and review conflicts that will be encountered.

Currently, roadway sections with active moratoriums have special consideration as to method and size of restoration, and additionally, increased permit fees.

Three moratorium types are displayed on the website:

– Street Construction is used when the street has been reconstructed. By City ordinance, the moratorium is ten (10) years and during this period permit fees are doubled.
– Street Resurfacing is used when the road has been repaved. By City ordinance, the moratorium is seven (7) years and during this period permit fees are doubled.
– Median or Median Landscaping is used where landscaped medians or planters exist on the street median. For these moratoriums types, there is no fee adjustment; however, if a construction permit is being requested, the applicant will be directed to review the planned project with the Department of Transportation/Division of Engineering staff for special instructions on how to properly protect or reconstruct street medians.

For ease of use and to limit the amount of information, the city provides these moratoriums by street name and address, within the fifty (50) municipal Ward boundaries.
