The Public Works Division manages a variety of construction projects for current and future improvements on City streets, water and sewer utilities, and water quality. As the City continues to grow and mature, on-going maintenance and strategic improvements will continue to be essential responsibilities of this Division.
For more information on how the City plans their construction projects, visit Public Works Documents & Reports. We've also created a list of Current & Future Construction Projects by area, however the most updated information can be found in the interactive map. Check out this They're Fixing My Street video to know what to expect when construction is planned in your neighborhood.

The City evaluates streets within the community throughout their life cycle (at least once every three years). On-going maintenance includes:
Sealcoating is the process of spraying an application of rapid-setting bituminous asphalt emulsion on the existing surface, followed immediately with placement of a small coating of rock chips over it. This process is also called chip sealing. Sealcoating is a Major Street Fund financed maintenance procedure.
Cracksealing is the method of using a liquid asphalt emultion and a rubberized sealant to seal cracks in pavement surfaces. This helps prevent moisture from infiltrating the pavement structure. Moisture in the pavement structure weakens the structural subsurface layers and is a primary cause of pavement deterioration. Cracksealing is a Major Street Fund financed maintenance procedure.
Edge Mill & Overlay is a structural improvement which renews the street surface, extending the life cycle of the original pavement by adding a new top layer of pavement. Overlays may include milling (grinding away) the old surface of the road at the edges before the application of new material. This keeps the cross section of the road at a correct geometry. Edge mill & overlay is a Major Steet Fund and Property Assessment financed maintenance procedure.
Resurfacing consists of a 1-2 inch milling across the entire road surface, before an overlay is applied. Resurfacing is used to treat considerable deteriorated roads with poor surfaces and possibly extensive thermal cracking. Resurfacing is a Major Street Fund and Property Assessment financed maintenance procedure.
Reconstruction is done once a road has deteriorated past the point of repair using other techniques. This process involves the removal of all of the pavement and replacement or adjustment of the aggregate base. Often, reconstruction is paired with the replacement of underground utility pipes and the repair or replacement of other roadway infrastructure like curbs and signs. Reconstruction is a Major Street Fund and Property Assessment financed maintenance procedure.
Sign replacement is done in the area where the surface is treated with an overlay, resurface or reconstruction. The lifespan of signs is generally shorter than the City's 20-year resurfacing cycle, so the City's Streets Division plans for about 400 sign replacements in non-overlay areas per year. Sign replacement is a Major Street Fund financed maintenance procedure.
