We have two primary responsibilities:
- To plan, design and manage the construction of infrastructure improvements, including transportation, water, wastewater, stormwater and park projects.
- To review and inspect the construction of public improvements in private developments.
We have a staff of seven located at the Public Works Administration Building.

You can generally find us inspecting and managing one or more of the construction projects underway in Redmond. Engineering is responsible for most of the capital improvement projects identified in the City's Public Facilities Plan and for replacement of old, undersized and worn out infrastructure.
5-YEAR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN
The City of Redmond has a 5-Year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) that includes planned projects sorted by proposed fiscal year for construction with columns that show what master plan identified the need for the project, estimated cost, whether the project improves accessibility in areas with an identified need and the source of funding for the project.
RECENT PROJECTS OUT FOR BID
- South Canal Blvd Street Improvement (1/31/18)
- OR126 at SW 35th Street Channelization (5/24/17)
- Reservoir 6 and Well 7 Improvements (4/12/17)
Eastside Sewer Interceptor: Construction is in progress for a large sewer interceptor along the east side of the railroad from NW Oak to SW Evergreen with laterals in Antler and Evergreen. The plan set can be viewed here. This sewer interceptor relieves interim connection to the Dry Canyon sewer and will provide capacity for industrial development on the east side of Redmond. This project is funded by a Clean Water State Revolving Fund loan from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality which will be paid back with System Development Charge revenue. For an overview of the project, click here.
Reservoir 6 Project: A new water reservoir is being built near NE 11th St and E Antler Ave at the location of the City's Well 7. The new pre-stressed concrete reservoir will hold 3.5 million gallons. The project also includes booster pumps to distribute up to 5,000 gallons of water per minute into the water system.
S. Canal: Obsidian to Yew Avenue: Improvements including new pavement, waterline, bike lanes and a multi-use path are proposed for S. Canal Blvd. between Obsidian and Yew Avenue.
OR126 & SW 35th St Channelization Project: The City completed construction on this project coordinated with ODOT to widen Highway 126 at the intersection of SW 35th St. This intersection had a history of rear-end collisions resulting from traffic stopped on Highway 126 to make left turns onto 35th Street. The left turn lanes will help reduce the accident rate, however, as traffic increases further improvements, such as a traffic signal, will be needed to improve safety for traffic making left turns from 35th or crossing Highway 126.
NW Dogwood Ave: 10th St. to 6th St. Water Project: This project completed a waterline loop to improve flow to an older section of town. Since Dogwood Avenue also provides access between the neighborhood, school and shopping area, sidewalks and curb ramps were upgraded. To view more details, you can click here for the plans.
Flag Monument: Located on Highway 97 near Highland, the Flag City USA monument has been completed.
SW 15th/Canyon Drive Highland to Deschutes: Construction of SW 15th and SW Canyon Drive between Highland and Deschutes is complete. Deteriorated pavement and old steel waterlines have been replaced. New sidewalks and storm drainage are in place. There are several traffic calming measures in place and bicycles will use the roadway so please drive carefully.
