If you need a permit, it’s just a click away.

A new online permitting system launched in our region today called the Road Construction and Incident Management System.

It allows the public to complete and submit various permit applications on the Region’s website and will make it easier to apply for permits for things like road closures, filming events, work permits for construction on Regional roads, and permits need for oversized loads.

The region says the new system will allow the public and contractors to submit applications quickly and efficiently online.

It will also help with improved traffic flow and Improved emergency vehicle response times because approved road and lane closures will be mapped and tracked and visible online.

The region adds, by sharing the information it will help Regional and municipal staff in planning and coordinating lane and road closures and will give staff the data they need to avoid multiple and or conflicting detours.
