About Public Works
The Public Works Department is committed to meeting the needs of residents by building and maintaining the infrastructure that is vital to our City.
We provide services such as pothole repairs, traffic signal maintenance, ensure proper storm drainage, street markings and signage. We also plan ahead through our 5-year rolling Infrastructure Management Program (IMP). Through the IMP, we plan the roads, alleys, drainage, sidewalks, etc. that need to be repaired over the course of the next five years. As we make progress each year, we add and adjust the plan to ensure we are always planning five years out. View our schedule.
The residents of San Antonio passed the $850 million 2017-2022 Bond Program in May 2017, the largest in the City's history. These series of projects impact the lives of residents in every part of our City and are vital to keeping up with our growth. Public Works is focused on ensuring all bond projects are delivered to the community utilizing the most efficient and effective methods. Public Works also oversees the management of both the 2007-2012 and 2012-2017 Bond Programs, totaling more than 290 projects, and other City capital projects from the design stage through construction.
