A Traffic Accommodation Plan (TAP), Traffic Accommodation Request (TAR) or Traffic Accommodation Strategy (TAS) is required for a traffic lane, bike lane, sidewalk or road closure. If your project involves a closure, a TAP, TAR or TAS should be submitted with your OSCAM Application. These documents are defined further below.
Traffic Accommodation Plan(s) or Traffic Control Plans (TAP or TCP), are drawings that illustrate the proposed set-ups and generally include the:
- Existing road configuration
- Work area location(s)
- Proposed types and locations of temporary traffic control devices
- Proposed time of day and duration of the set-up
- Permit number
Traffic Accommodation Requests (TARs) can be submitted to ask the City of Edmonton to develop the Traffic Accommodation Strategy for a project. TARs should include project details such as proposed work activities and locations and project duration.
For complex set-ups or projects with long timeframes, a Traffic Accommodation Strategy (TAS) or Transportation Management Plan (TMP) may be needed for the project. The City of Edmonton will identify if a TAS or TMP is needed.
