The Transportation Core Service Area is responsible for investing in the
County’s streets, highways, and airports through regular maintenance and
improvement projects. We are committed to implementing practices and promoting
polices that enhance mobility and quality of life and are consistent with the
principles of sustainability.
As an agency that manages the largest and most diverse roadway network in the
State, Public Works has taken the lead to provide greener, cost effective roads
by implementing a Sustainable Pavement Treatment Program for the
rehabilitation, construction, and maintenance of its roadway network.
In 2012, the County adopted a Bicycle Master Plan to encourage the use of
bicycling as a general means of transportation; enhance the safety of bicycle
users; and provide guidelines for the development, expansion, and
implementation of the County’s bikeway system. The Plan proposes the
implementation of over 830 miles of new bikeways through 2032.
In addition, Public Works has developed the Green Infrastructure Guidelines to
provide guidance on how Low Impact Development and other sustainable practices
can be integrated into the planning and design of transportation projects to
minimize the economic, social, and environmental impacts of development.
