Engineering Services

Underneath Richards Boulevard at Interstate 5

The Engineering Services Division focuses on managing the City’s investment in new transportation infrastructure. By planning, funding and delivering capital improvement projects, and reviewing private development projects, the division improves the safety and usability of the City’s transportation system for all users:  pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles. The division delivers road, bridge, traffic signal, and street light improvement projects, and provides planning, design, inspection, and survey services.

Our mission is to provide on-time/on-budget delivery of transportation projects, at the highest level of quality, and with minimum disruptions in the project development cycle - from a project’s early planning and funding stages through design and construction completion.
