Apply for OSCAM Permit
Prior to submitting an OSCAM Permit Application, please review the Pre-Planning Checklist Before Work Begins
Do you have a Customer ID Number?
The Customer ID Number makes the application process faster as it auto-fills portions of the form. The Customer ID Number can be found on a previously approved OSCAM Permit.
If you don’t have a Customer ID number, complete the application and one will be provided with the approval of your OSCAM permit.
Do you have a Traffic Accommodation Plan?
A Traffic Accommodation Plan (TAP) is required for a traffic lane, bike lane, sidewalk or road closure. If your project involves a closure, a TAP should be submitted with your OSCAM Application.
If you have not yet created your TAP or are unfamiliar with the process, please use the online tools located in the Traffic Accommodation Plan section on this page.
When should you submit an application?
- High impact to traffic - minimum 10 working days prior to start of work, request an OSCAM permit
- Low impact to traffic - minimum two working days prior to start of work, request an OSCAM permit
- Emergency work - report work immediately to the City at 780-944-7694 or after hours at 311
Average processing time for an OSCAM permit application is 6 business days. Unless it’s an emergency, please allow time for processing and public notification, especially for major impacts.
You’ll receive notification by email with a reference number in the event you need to follow up with the OSCAM permit office.
Method of Payment
A $25 per day permit fee is now required for most OSCAM Permits.
If you are required to pay fees for your OSCAM permit, you may select your preferred method of payment during the application process. Based on your selection, you will receive an email to pay by credit card or an invoice in the mail.
