​​​​A right-of-way permit (PDF) is required to do construction work in the public right-of-way, including public sidewalks.  Permit applications may be submitted at customer service desk on the 1st floor of Larcom City Hall at Larcom City Hall located at 301 E. Huron Street

If work in the right-of-way will interfere with traffic, a Lane Closure Application (PDF) will need to be submitted at least 48 hours in advance to the Project Management Unit, located on the fourth floor of City Hall. ​​

Lane Closure Applications help assure that proper work zone safety procedures are followed when contractors are working in the right-of-way. All proposed work zone traffic control plans must conform to the Michigan Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MMUTCD) Part VI, Construction and Maintenance. Copies of the MMUTCD Part VI are available from the Project Management Unit.

Lane Closure Applications must include​:


  • Date and Times of Work
  • Location and Type of Work
  • Description of Traffic Control necessary detours
  • Applicant's Name, Address and Phone Number (24-hour emergency contact)
  • Right-of-Way Permit Number


Lane closures are typically required when a contractor must cut into the street. Cutting into the street is often necessary when making underground utility repairs. When cuts are needed, the contractor must make arrangements with the right-of-way/street cut inspectors for approval of their work.​
