Once you receive your permit or approval, you may proceed with your project, subject of course to those terms set out by the Ministry. All permits require that you notify the district office 48 hours before you begin any works.

This notice enables ministry staff to:

  • keep an eye on the project to watch for traffic hazards, etc.
  • check that suitable materials are used
  • see that the contractor's work follows the terms of the permit
  • advise the maintenance contractor of activity

You will need to fill out and submit a Work Notification/Lane Closure Request and Approval Form in order to conduct any work on the right-of-way.
