    Yes. They need be posted for only 24 hours.

    Here are the relevant sections from CVC 22651:

    (l) When a vehicle is illegally parked on a highway in violation
    of a local ordinance forbidding standing or parking and the use of a
    highway, or a portion thereof, is necessary for the cleaning, repair,
    or construction of the highway, or for the installation of
    underground utilities, and signs giving notice that the vehicle may
    be removed are erected or placed at least 24 hours prior to the
    removal by a local authority pursuant to the ordinance.

    (m) Wherever the use of the highway, or a portion of the highway,
    is authorized by a local authority for a purpose other than the
    normal flow of traffic or for the movement of equipment, articles, or
    structures of unusual size, and the parking of a vehicle would
    prohibit or interfere with that use or movement, and signs giving
    notice that the vehicle may be removed are erected or placed at least
    24 hours prior to the removal by a local authority pursuant to the
    ordinance.

    (n) Whenever a vehicle is parked or left standing where local
    authorities, by resolution or ordinance, have prohibited parking and
    have authorized the removal of vehicles. A vehicle shall not be
    removed unless signs are posted giving notice of the removal.
