Apr 9 '21 at 0:40 comment added jwh20 What many people do it call for locates, then that helps them plan their project. Then they call and "renew" the locates before starting to dig. It generally takes only a couple of days for the locate folks to get out and do the work. In most places they only have a limited amount of time to do the locates.

Apr 8 '21 at 19:14 comment added jwh20 Check with the utilities in your location but most of the time there is an expiration date on any locates. Most commonly they are valid for 14 days. Remember that if you dig AFTER that time and hit an unmarked utility, you may be liable for the damages.
