CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS ON CITY STREETS


Public Works has developed a Search Page for residents and customers to use when questions arise about construction activities taking place on City streets. This new search utility shows street permits issued to Utility companies and Private Development projects, as well as City initiated Capital construction projects working in the public right-of-way.
