Call 311 to speak to an agent

An agent will take the basic application information required and then forward the information to the appropriate Roads division for fulfillment. Note that the Service Request (SR) number you receive from 311 for your application is NOT your permit number. You will only be issued a permit number after you have been contacted by the respective division within Roads and have met the application criteria.
