The purpose of the 811 Express program is to allow Homeowners and Excavators to submit a single
ticket for an individual address. When excavating, you are
required to notify the utilities two working days in advance of your excavation project. Based
solely on the accuracy of the information and address mapping that you
enter and verify, USA North 811 will notify its members who may have underground facilities at
your address location. The notified members will either mark (using
paint or other methods) their underground facilities, provide information as to the location of their
underground facilities, or notify you of no conflict with
their underground facilities at the address.
USA North 811 does not validate the accuracy or assume responsibility for the information and
address mapping entered and verified by you. Official confirmation of your
811 Express Ticket consists of a ticket number and a list of members receiving the notification
provided to you at the completion of the final step of the 811 Express
Ticket entry process. Your 811 Express Ticket will be active for 28 calendar days from the day
it is officially confirmed.
