MANAGING THE STREET EXCAVATION PERMITTING PROCESS IN THE RIGHT OF WAY

Tue, February 21, 2017 – 10:00am EST (1 hour)

The Philadelphia Streets Department is responsible for managing and regulating the roadway Right-of-Way (“ROW”) for the City of Philadelphia. As such, the Department is required to issue street opening permits, which allows utilities to excavate City streets in order to install or maintain their infrastructure. The Department is also responsible for paving City maintained streets and for coordinating work on state maintained streets. This coordination was managed in the Guaranteed Pavement Information System (“GPIS”) which connects departments and organizations in and outside of the City.

The City replaced the legacy GPIS system with a modern, web-based, scalable system. The new GPIS provides the flexibility, scalability, and interoperability needed to meet both current requirements and future phases of the new system. Features of the new system include project tracking, utility clearance notification, and reporting. In addition, an advanced GIS mapping component provides users with the ability to identify project locations, collaborate with existing City ROW project owners, and manage project conflicts.
