The Indiana 811 law was recently updated to include design tickets to help professionals plan future activities that are likely to involve excavation.


Per the law, a “Design Information Notice,” or design ticket, is defined as a notification made to Indiana 811 in preparation for bidding, preconstruction engineering, or other advance planning efforts. Indiana 811 began processing design ticket requests by phone on July 1, web based design tickets are coming in the near future. With these new options, a person responsible for the design of a construction project, or any project that will involve excavation or demolition, can request the locating of underground utility facilities at least 10 full days, but no more than 20 days prior to the start of engineering studies or construction planning.


A design ticket may not be used for excavation purposes. As with excavation notices, design tickets will only be sent to Indiana 811’s member utilities and/or their locators, and the person serving the design ticket will be responsible for private lines, and to notify non-member utilities directly.
