Street closure requests must be approved by the City of Stillwater. Some street closures are more complex than others, particularly on heavily traveled streets. In some cases, the City may require you to close a street or streets for your event or may prohibit the closing of certain streets for an event. If streets are to be closed, an accurate traffic control plan should be developed to show that all traffic control devices will be placed correctly.
Here are some additional requirements to include in your traffic control plan:
Same day barricade pickup is required.
36-inch cones, or other approved devices, are required when separating traffic from participants on a route.
You are required to keep a 20-foot wide open lane for emergency vehicles.
Sidewalks must remain open for public access to the site.
After your event, traffic control devices must not block any rights of way.
The event organizer is responsible for providing street closures.
If resources are available, the City of Stillwater can provide this service. In some cases, hiring a private contractor instead of the City may be a better choice for your event.
