​​​​​​​​​​The Engineering department is responsible for designing and constructing utility, roadway, and sidewalk​ projects; coordinating and inspecting the utility and public roadway​​ work of developers; and optimizing traffic flow through the City. ​

Engineering staff guide projects from conception to completion, working closely with residents and the community before and during projects. These projects include road reconstruction/resurfacing, sidewalk repair/replacement, bridge maintenance and utility replacements. ​

Choosing streets for resurfacing and repaving

Principles of the City's Pavement Asset Management Plan guide the selection process for street​ construction. Limiting factors include available funding and the need for other infrastructure/utility improvements.​

Crosswalk​ design guidelines

The purpose of this project was to engage​ the public about concerns about ​crosswalk inconsistencies, learn more about community preferences for crosswalks, and share city guidelines. ​​
