Locate requests expire 14 calendar days from the time/date they are processed and submitted. In order to extend the request beyond the expiration date, the excavator will need to “Update” the request at least 2 calendar days but not more than 6 calendar days prior to the expiration time/date listed on the request. To Update your request online go to: https://otr.bluestakes.org/. It is also accessible by clicking on the Update Locate Request icon from within our Mobile App.

There is currently not an option for automatic Updates.

Note: Do not Update a request if excavation work is not going to take place within 14 calendar days. Wait until you are ready to excavate again and submit a New request 2 calendar days prior to excavating. Your original Locate Request Ticket information can be used for the New request and this can be completed through the same link.
