Residential Street Closures

The temporary closure of a public street requires the approval of the City of Turlock in accordance with California Vehicle Code 21101(e). This authority has been delegated to the City Manager, or his designee, per City of Turlock Resolution No. 2013-126. This permit is available at a cost of $74.00 to residents seeking a short-term closure of a residential street.

Applicants will be expected to adhere to all requirements set forth by City of Turlock as a condition of approval, so carefully review these requirements prior to submitting an application:


  1. General Conditions: Permit shall only be valid when completed by a signature of the Applicant, of at least 18 years of age, along with a signature of an authorized City official.
  2. Notification: The Applicant must notify each of the residents within the proposed closure area as soon as practically possible, but no later than (72) hours prior to the start of the closure. Notification may be made verbally or in writing.
  3. Traffic Control Plan (TCP): A TCP will be provided by the City and must be followed at all times, exactly as specified. Barricades, signs, and other traffic control items must be provided by the applicant; the City does not have these available for rent or general use.
  4. Maintain path of travel: The applicant shall maintain a path of travel at least 12' wide, from one end of the closure to the other, free of fixed objects (i.e. vehicles, bounce houses). This path may be used by emergency services if access is needed.
  5. Lighted Barricades: Lighted barricades shall be used for events that occur outside of daylight hours.
  6. Permit Available: Have permit available. An approved, hard copy of the permit is required to be available on-site during the event and presented to authorized City officials upon request.

Failure to adhere to the listed conditions may result in the suspension of the event, immediate re-opening of the street, and denial of future street closure applications by that applicant.

  2. Staff reviews closure to ensure it will not negatively affect the transportation network.
  3. Staff drafts Traffic Control Plan (TCP) and attaches it to the application for routing.
  4. Staff forwards packet to both Police and Fire Services for review and comment (1 week).
  5. If no concerns are raised by the Police and Fire Services, then the permit is approved.
