Traffic Control Plans (TCP's)

Basic Objectives:

  • Permit work with the Public ROW (right-of-way)
  • Maintain a Safe, Uniform flow of traffic (all modes)

*A TCP (Traffic Control Plan) is required for any blockage of the public right-of-way on arterial and collector roads, and for any blockage exceeding 4 hours on local roads.

Requirements:

*NOTE:  TCP’s for projects overseen by TxDOT may require a Texas PE to stamp. TCP’s for projects occurring on state roads will require TxDOT approval.

TCP Submittal:

  • The TCP and the associated work plan shall be submitted to the City of Waco Engineering office 15 days prior to the anticipated start date.
  • A copy of the current certification shall be submitted as part of the request.

Other Information:

  • Multiple phases of construction will require a separate TCP for each phase.  All may be submitted at one time for acceptance.
  • Each TCP must be developed to address the specific conditions of the planned construction work zone location.
  • City Ordinance: Sec. 23-25. Traffic Control

Unless an emergency exists, as that term is defined herein, traffic lane closures in the right-of-way which obstruct the flow of traffic for longer than four hours at a time may allowed only under the direction and permission of the city engineer and in accordance with the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (Texas MUTCD) and other applicable local, state or federal law, except that the flow of traffic on collectors or arterials cannot be obstructed for any period of time except under the direction and permission of the city engineer and in accordance with the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (Texas MUTCD) and other applicable local, state or federal law.
