The City works on a large number of street construction projects throughout the year. Some are major projects planned for and budgeted through our Capital Improvement Program (CIP). Others, like asphalt overlay and slurry seal projects, are maintenance programs to improve ride quality and extend the period between major rehabilitation or reconstruction. We also work on infrastructure improvements in and around streets like sanitary sewer, water mains, and storm drainage.

Planning for Street Construction
All roads eventually need repair. As the City grows and expands, changing commuter routes require capacity improvements or new construction. Engineers work hard to plan for both repairing and building new roads throughout the City. Major projects often involve feasibility studies to help forecast infrastructure needs.
Every year we detail projects we are planning for the next 5 years in the Capital Improvement Program. This is presented to the City Council for approval each year. Projects are funded primarily through the Second Penny Sales Tax. You can find the most recent edition online to see if anything is planned for your neighborhood or commute.
