City of Saginaw MI -
Corner Clearance Obstructions
City of Saginaw Ordinance 94.08 - Obstruction to Visibility at Intersections was enacted to create a clear vision area for motorists, to help reduce traffic hazards and increase safety in the public right-of-way. The City issues citations for "public nuisances due to obstruction" to various parcels throughout the year; typical obstructions may include a sign, fence, hedge or shrub in the corner clearance. Below you can see several examples of sight obstructions.
The clear vision map provides an outline of the boundary for the sixty-foot corner clearance triangle, and height restriction for bushes and shrubs, as well as the proper clearance height for trees.
If you notice a corner clearance obstruction within an intersection:
- Please contact the City Call Center at (989) 399-1311
- A field review is then conducted to mark boundaries and obtain pictures of the obstruction
- A citation is issued to the property owner for compliance within two weeks
- If the obstruction is not abated in a timely manner, the City removes the obstruction completely and charges all costs to the responsible property owner
