We cannot process your request without all required information and documents.

Step 1

Online application

This step may take: 3–5 business days to process your completed application.

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

Step 2

Estimate and agreements

This step may take: 20–60 days after we have received your completed application.

We will provide an estimate and service agreement for your project. 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

This step may take: 90–150 days depending on the scope of the work and any changes you request.

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

This step may take: 60–120 days to request and sign off on easement agreements, depending on external approvals (agencies other than Manitoba Hydro).

Before any 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

This step may take: 20–60 days depending on scope of work and site condition.

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

This step may take: 5–20 days to energize your roadway lighting, once construction and final inspections are complete.

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