- Fill out the MOT Form electronically and attach all supplemental documents to the application. The City only accepts complete electronic applications. Incomplete applications will be rejected and returned to the applicant.
The City has developed LauderStreet, a mobile friendly searchable map that provides location-specific information about road and sidewalk closures in the City's right-of-way. When applying for an MOT in the City, you can use LauderStreet as a planning tool to see if there are any current or upcoming closures at the same location during the times and dates you are submitting an MOT for. By avoiding overlapping road closures and working together we can reduce traffic impacts in the City.
LauderStreet features location-specific information on each closure such as the reason for the closure, duration of the closure and in many cases, detour information. The map links directly to Google’s traffic layer, allowing users to see the impact a closure is having on traffic. Please click here to view LauderStreet today!
