Lateral Support Bond

Bond Penalty: Set per project value

A general contractor engaged in subdivision work or projects that touch on public streets may need to purchase and file a lateral support bond with a state of municipality. Excavation work conducted on or near a public right of way or on private property adjoining the same where lateral support of a street or road might be imperiled may be required to provide this surety bond. Lateral support bonds are also known as "excavation" surety bonds, and in some jurisdictions "shoring" bonds. Lateral support bonds are also often required for sewer and sanitary work and in conjuction with other payment and performance bond instruments.

In determining the bond amount, a municipality's engineering or building department will generally follow a formula. For example, the City of Los Angeles fixes lateral support bond penalties through the City's local district offices. The bond estimate includes the value of the improvement, a I5% permit contingency factor (PCF) and a 50% cost increase factor (CIF). The obligation guarantees that the contractor will exersise due diligence in efforts to preserve a adjoining land, right of ways, and the buildings and structures on it. The shoring bond may also guarantee that the excavating contractor removes any permitted structure or obstruction that becomes insecure or unsafe, or is not constructed or maintained in accordance with the terms of an excavatoin permit.
