Request New or Maintenance to Existing Traffic Markings
Have you noticed a fading or missing crosswalk line, stop line or centre line?
Be sure to let us know, the street location, colouring of the markings and whether the markings are close to a school.
City staff does lane striping from Monday to Thursday, usually late evenings or early mornings when traffic is light.
