Roadway lighting

Requesting roadway lighting additions, relocations or salvages starts with an online application.

Incomplete applications will delay the process.

Step 1

Online application

Roadway lighting is installed on streets, provincial roads, bridges, overpasses, underpasses, and interchanges. Only Public Authorities or Manitoba Infrastructure, who assume all monthly charges, can apply for roadway lighting. A street light resolution may be required from a Public Authority.

Apply for service

After you apply

Once you have submitted a complete application, we will assign someone to your project. They will contact you for any missing information, discuss project scope, service dates, complete the necessary agreements, and arrange on-site meetings.

They may request your complete AutoCAD files (.DWG) indicating the scope of the project.

Step 2

Estimate and agreements

We will provide an estimate and service agreement for your project's service construction. If your application was incomplete in any way, there will be a delay in providing your estimates and electrical agreements.

The planning and design of your roadway lighting project starts after we have:

  • all the documents;
  • details;
  • signed agreements;
  • payment for your project.

Step 3

Planning and design

After we receive your signed agreements and payments, we may meet you on-site to review your project.

During this step, we will:

  • discuss the project completion date;
  • create a detailed design for your project;
  • request easement agreements;
  • order materials for construction.

You will sign off on any required drawings and agreements.


Step 4

Easements and approvals

Before any service construction can be scheduled:

  • we will request any easement agreements;
  • you will sign off on the easement agreements and any required drawings.

As easements are registered and approved by other entities, we are not responsible for any delays.


Step 5

Site preparation and construction

After the design plan is complete and any easements have been registered, we will inspect your site for readiness and contact Click Before You Dig MB and other utilities before we begin construction.

The site must:

  • have a final grade of ± 6″;
  • have all trees, equipment, and garbage removed from construction area.

Step 6

Service connection

Once construction is complete, the lighting will be energized. Monthly charges will start and be paid by the Public Authority or Manitoba Infrastructure.
