Drafting and Design
The Public Works Design and Construction Section designs and reviews construction plans for various City transportation and drainage capital projects. After the scope of a capital project is identified, staff uses various technical information such as survey data, traffic studies, and other field investigations to prepare a design and develop construction plans. Additional Work includes obtaining permits, preparing budgets, and developing construction specifications for the project.
This section also provides technical support to other Public Work divisions and other City departments, coordinates with various County and State agencies and represents the City at various technical planning functions.
