Capital Improvement Projects
The Public Works Department delivers transportation capital improvement projects which improve and enhance public safety, achieve sustainability, enhance livability, and expand economic development. To support the current and anticipated growth in Sacramento, the City must continue to design and construct new infrastructure improvements to meet these needs.
Additional project information can be obtained in the current Transportation Capital Improvement Program (pdf).
For more information regarding how potential capital improvement projects are selected, see our Transportation Programming Guide (TPG). View funding sources for capital improvement projects.

California Multi-Agency CIP Benchmarking Study
After projects have been completed, Public Works shares project data such as construction and project delivery costs with the California Multi-Agency CIP Benchmarking Study. The annual study provides a forum for collaboration among seven of the largest eight cities in California. The purpose of the study is to discuss current issues and challenges faced in the delivery of capital improvement programs, share the best ideas to address them, and build on the collective experiences of the participating agencies. The study has developed over 70 best management practices for the delivery of capital projects and has created a database containing over 2,200 projects which serves as the repository of project performance data collected by the agencies since 2002.
Participating agencies include the Cities of Long Beach, Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Jose, and the City and County of San Francisco. The City of Sacramento was a founding member of the study and has been an active participant since its inception in 2002. Nicholas Theocharides, Engineering Manager for Public Works, has served as Chair of the Study since 2011.
