Infrastructure is the framework our economy and lifestyle are built upon. The Engineering Services Department plans, constructs, rehabilitates, and reconstructs the City’s streets, traffic control systems, water, sanitary sewer, and storm drainage infrastructure.
Maintaining street systems and traffic control for pedestrians and drivers is also a responsibility of Engineering Services. In order to increase safety and reduce congestion, the Engineering Services Department manages the City’s streets by adjusting traffic signals, modifying traffic signs and updating lane markings. The department also coordinates the use of the right of way enabling private and public utilities and telecommunication providers to bring the services citizens need and enjoy.
Typical projects include pavement overlays, street reconstruction with curbs and sidewalks, new traffic signals, street lighting, water main and sewer main replacements, and installing new storm drainage facilities.
