The City works to improve the safety of the City’s transportation and pedestrian grid, invest in the urbanization of city streets to include bicycle and pedestrian connectivity, and develop multi-use paths for the betterment of the community. 

The Public Works Department manages all operations associated with streets including the implementation of the City’s Pavement Preservation Plan projects such as spot treatment, maintenance of stormwater facilities, watering hanging baskets in the Downtown Area, and the procurement of street services for major streets projects. The roads within the City that have the heaviest traffic are owned and maintained by either the Oregon Department of Transportation or Lane County. That leaves approximately 22 miles of roadways within the scope of the City’s public works department.
