Road and Utility Projects

Road and utility projects make up the majority of the City's Capital Improvement Program (CIP), but the CIP also includes regular upgrades, maintenance, and replacements. To maintain the overall health of our transportation and utility infrastructure network, existing roads and underground utility systems have to be reconstructed or replaced when they reach the end of their useful life. The projects listed below are the ongoing and upcoming projects that you can expect throughout 2019. All project schedules and timelines are subject to change.

Crews from the Water Department are expected follow.
