Please read carefully:
A Road Occupancy Permit is required for work within any portion of the public right-of- way (the road, boulevard, shoulders and sidewalk), whether the work requires a closure or lane restrictions or not. The Works Department is responsible for issuing permits for any work done on Regional roads. Please go to the following URL to get a listing of Region Roads:
Work that impacts a sidewalk or multi-use path may also require a permit from the local municipality. There is no fee for a Regional Road Occupancy Permit.
Examples of work that requires a Road Occupancy Permit includes:
• excavation of the boulevard for utility installation or maintenance
• any work that involves crossing the boulevard, such as landscaping or installing pools
• road widening projects
• installation of storm sewers, sanitary sewers and watermains for site development
• geotechnical investigations and monitoring
• crane setup (including arc swing over the Region’s right-of-way)
• placement of disposal bins
• entrance construction or removal
During road occupancy, Regional staff performs regular inspections of the work to ensure:
• efficient traffic flow on the road during the work
• safety is maintained on the roads, boulevards and sidewalks
• the right-of-way is kept clean and free of construction materials and equipment
• applicants comply with Regional standards, permit conditions and approved locations
• applicants restore the right-of-way to its original state within a reasonable time
• all work is documented for future use
Applications should be submitted a minimum of five (5) business days prior to the requested occupancy date.
