Sunshine 811 Holiday Calendar for 2018 & 2019

Happy Holidays! Sunshine 811 will be closed the following holidays for the remainder of 2018 and in 2019. Plan ahead and add one extra waiting day for locates where Sunshine 811 is closed for one day and two when we are closed for two days. See the chart at bottom for a reminder.

You can create locate tickets during holidays with Internet Ticket Entry. It’s available 24/7. ITE requires a short online training course and a user name and password. Click here to complete your application.

Homeowners and professional excavators digging at one address may request a ticket online using Single Address Ticket. SAT requires no training and is also available 24/7. Click here to access.

Any tickets created during holidays are not valid until 12:01 a.m. the next business day. For example, tickets entered over the Thanksgiving holiday will be valid Monday, November 26, 2018, at 12:01 a.m. That is when your two-day waiting period begins.

If you haven’t done so already, we recommend downloading our Sunshine 811 mobile app for Android or iPhone.

  • ITE users can log in using the irth ITE login icon (icon with cell phone) to see which utility owners have responded to a ticket. Accessing this information onsite makes it easy to compare the codes to what you see and identify when something isn’t right.
