Traffic Control Permit

Fees and Process for Lane Closure Requests

A non-refundable fee of $103 for the first week and $51 per additional week is required for all Traffic Control Permits (previously known as Lane Closure Requests) to help cover administration and inspection costs.

Effective January 1, 2020, the fee will increase to $105.50 for the first week and $52.25 for each additional week.

You will be sent an invoice on receipt of your completed form and your application will be assessed once full payment is received. Existing fees for noise variances, signage requirements and hooding parking meters will also continue to be applied.

No person shall close a street, or portion thereof, or restrict or divert traffic, without authorization from the City of Burnaby as per the City’s Street and Traffic Bylaw. Any construction zone on a roadway must conform to regulations outlined in the Traffic Control Manual for Work on Roadways.
