Transportation Engineering & Design

The Transportation Engineering and Design (TED) Division is responsible for the design of various transportation related capital improvement projects.  Our primary focus is pavement rehabilitation, striping, American Disabilities Act curb ramps, bike lanes, bike racks and sidewalk installation. Our division believes that Streets are a vital part of livable, attractive communities. Everyone, regardless of age, ability or income ought to have safe, comfortable and convenient access to community destinations and public places. Whether walking, driving, bicycling or taking public transportation, our goal in Transportation Engineering and Design is to provide "Complete Streets" with every project we design and build.

What Is a Complete Street?

A complete street is a transportation facility that is planned, designed, operated, and maintained to provide safe mobility for all users, including children, elderly, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit vehicles and trucks appropriate to the function and context of the facility. Every complete street looks different, according to its context, community preferences, the types of road users, and their needs.
