New Tool Will Help Community Members Track Major Construction and Improvement Projects.
DENTON, TX, Jan. 11, 2022 – The City of Denton recently launched an interactive map for community members to stay informed on City managed construction and improvement projects. This includes projects such as public art installations, playground updates, roadway reconstructions, and railroad quiet zones, among other projects. The new Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) Map is now available at www.discussdenton.com/cipmap and allows users to focus on a selected location, view planned, in progress, and completed projects, toggle between aerial and map views, and access project pages for select projects.
“The new CIP Map makes it easier for community members to find information on City managed construction and improvement projects happening in their neighborhood or throughout Denton,” said Stuart Birdseye, Deputy Director of Public Affairs. “We value transparency and want it to be easy for our community to get information about changes as they become available. This new tool will help us do just that.”
The CIP Map data is sourced from various City departments and is updated daily. All projects displayed on the map are scheduled to initiate construction within the next year (Planned), currently in construction (In Progress), or have been completed within the last 60 days (Recently Completed). Routine and quick maintenance projects, such as pot hole repairs and minor sidewalk maintenance, will not be featured on the CIP Map. The weekly street closure report (SCR) will include these projects and is available at www.improvingdenton.com.
The tool was developed by the City’s Capital Engineering and geographic information system (GIS) teams. To learn more and to discover additional construction resources visit Improving Denton or the CIP Map webpage.
