It is the job of the Engineering Department to coordinate the improvement of local streets and sidewalks. The improvements enhance safety and increase quality of life in the University Place community.
Street projects are prioritized according to safety and are listed in the 6-year Transportation Improvement Plan approved by the City Council; state and/or federal grant funding sometimes makes it possible for these projects to be constructed ahead of schedule.
