Utility Repair Tag Pavement Markers

In Spring 2011, the Public Works Department initiated a new policy for patching procedures that requires all utility companies, private contractors, city contractors, and other agencies who perform excavation work on the City's roadways or sidewalks to install a color coded identification marker into the surface of their asphalt patches.

The use of Utility Repair Tag pavement markers

  • ensures accountability of each and every patch left after construction,
  • saves the City time and resources through fast identification of patch creators,
  • and provides an incentive for permittees to do the best possible job.

When a sidewalk is repaired, tags are only placed on temporary asphalt patches. Permanent sidewalk repairs (concrete, brick, etc) do not require a tag.  

Each tag is UV stable plastic and contains letters and numbers that relate to its user. The diagram below explains the meaning of the letter and number sequences found on the face of each marker.

Public Works assigned each permittee's Utility Repair Tag a unique color.

Due to the number of private contractors working in the City of Boston, the Public Works Department assigned each private contractor a unique code along with their customer ID number to be imprinted on their green marker.
