The City designs, constructs, and maintains our streets, sidewalks, bridges, and structures for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles.
Our surveyors, drafters, designers, project coordinators, and engineers work together to balance the needs of all street users, and design accessible streets and sidewalks. By doing this, we help to create a vibrant community experience on our streets.
Great streets require:
- Visual and environmental enhancements, like street trees and boulevard gardens
- Inclusive elements that provide accessibility to everyone: those with mobility issues, walkers, cyclists, businesses moving goods, and drivers
- High quality solutions that last, from paving materials, to street fixtures and amenities
Our street maintenance and design pays specific attention to minimizing environmental impacts, such as reducing stormwater runoff, and accommodating sustainable modes of transportation.
Maintaining our sidewalks and streets for garbage, leaves, snow, and potholes play an important role in keeping our city clean and vibrant.
