Contract Drawing Storage and Retrieval
Corridor Approvals and Records maintain a electronic files of Regional Road contracts. These drawing are available to the public by request for a fee. These drawings are available in a TIFF or PDF format. AutoCAD drawings are not available.
To request drawings, please send us an e-mail including the specific location and your contact.
Phone: 905-830-4444 ext. 5086.
NOTE: Your request will be handled within 5 business days or shorter. Although we have most drawings, there are certain roads where minimal information is available.
Corridor Approvals and Records have survey staff to pick up rights-of-way information for capital delivery projects, property line issues as well as traffic signal surveys.
The need to manage assets within the road allowance is important to the Region. With the asset data available, decisions can be made on which assets should be replaced based on their lifecycle. Corridor Approvals staff are implementing a new asset management program to provide senior staff with better decision making information as well as improved customer service. The new program will be implemented by early 2013.
The spills team responds to minor roadway accidents which impact the road allowance. The team ensures that our road asset is returned to its original pre-spill condition.
The spills team can be contacted through Transportation Dispatch at 905-830-4444 ext. 5200.
