The City is responsible for maintaining approximately 380 miles of streets, one of our largest infrastructure assets. Every year a variety of street capital improvement projects are undertaken, such as street construction/rehabilitation, median and turn lane modifications, street overlay, slurry seals, curb ramps, and sidewalk construction and replacement.
All projects are prioritized in conformance with the City's General Plan, Federal/State mandates and local community standards. Construction projects that impact the community are posted on the City website and are routinely included in City Scene, the City's monthly newsletter. In some cases, a separate project newsletter is created and distributed to those that sign up to receive periodic updates.
Although not all the ongoing project are posted on this page, those projects expected to impact the community are posted and updated on a regular basis. Below is a current list of City projects.
