No - the permit does have a time limit - as part of the permit you have to specify how long the lane is going to be closed - it is part of the terms of the closure.

I suspect that Vranich just dropped the traffic control barriers one morning and the City has sat on its hands ever since.

There are also other legalities - especially if these are unapproved closures. If the City has not enforced its own bylaws - which would also enforce traffic control standards (commonly referred to as MTO Book 7) - the City would be open to liability.

If there has been a spike in traffic collision - this is easy pickings for lawyers to sue the City for negligence. Of course the developer could be sued too - but the City is a much fatter chump.
