There is no charge for this permit although it is mandatory that you receive permission from the District before performing excavations within the right-of-way for any reason. Complete an Application for Permit to Construct within the Public Right of Way and submit it to the Engineering Department at least 10 working days prior to the anticipated start date. If the work will cause traffic disruption (i.e. lane or road closures), a traffic control plan must accompany the application.
Locates are required prior to excavating and can be obtained by calling BC ONE at 1 800 474 6886. Failure to do so will invalidate the permit.
