The Public Works Department serves the public throughout the City of Austin. You may have seen our crews repairing sidewalks and streets in your neighborhood, maintaining bridge infrastructure, or expanding the urban trails network. We work to improve neighborhoods and residents’ quality of life through both the Safe Routes to Schools Program and the cost-sharing Neighborhood Partnering Program. The department also provides Capital Improvement Program (CIP) project delivery for the majority of the City’s CIP projects by providing design, project management and inspection services.
