Engineering Department

Overview

Focused on innovative engineering, we're dedicated to preserving and improving the physical assets in our community. This includes construction projects involving public roads, City-owned utilities and City-owned facilities. We also partner with private developers to make sure their buildings are provided City utility services and that the affected City utilities, public roads and sidewalks are built to our standards.

We create infrastructure with you in mind so you can get where you need to go safely and efficiently.

We plan road closures for construction purposes in advance. Want to know where and when to expect these? Check out the map below for more information.

We plan and coordinate road construction projects. We know it's important to keep you informed about when construction is planned and how to best navigate during construction. We've outlined how parking, trash collection, mail and other services are affected during construction in our Road Construction Guide here.

Find out which roads are currently closed or planned for closure in our map below.

We're focused on improving our transportation network through our Vital Streets Program. Find out how all the construction and improvements planned will help our community reach our program goals here.

We construct and repair the City's sidewalks. To do this we issue permits for repair work to City sidewalks. We also provide information about how to report a complaint about sidewalks including:

  • Damaged sidewalks
  • Debris on a sidewalk
  • Questions about completed sidewalk repairs
  • Sidewalk restoration
  • Irrigation damage

Having trouble walking on public sidewalk through the snow? Residents have 24 hours from the time it stops snowing to clear the sidewalks adjacent to their property. Report uncleared public sidewalks here.

Check out more information about sidewalk maintenance in our guide below.

Working with the community and private developers is important to our strategy. Are you a construction company interested in working on a City project or in working on City-owned utilities on behalf of a private developer? You'll need to become a prequalified company before you can bid on projects or work on City-owned utilities for a developer. We post bid opportunities for you and guide you through the process in the guide below.
