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.

SW 15th Street Improvements: Waterline is being installed between highland and Kalama, installation of storm line and drywells between Juniper and Kalama, installation of sidewalk and bike lanes on SW 15th Street.
Homestead Canal Trail - North Section: The construction for the north section of the Homestead Canal Trail is complete. Benches, kiosks, and signage will be installed later this year (2019).
Far West Sewer Interceptor Improvement: The City will be extending the sewer line from NW 23rd St down NW Spruce Ave, past NW 19th St, and connecting to the sewer main in the Dry Canyon. This project will also include roadway construction, concrete sidewalks, and ADA ramps. This project will eliminate a pump station currently located at NW Spruce Ave and NW 19th St. Click here to view the plan set.
South Canal Blvd Improvements: The City of Redmond completed upgrades to South Canal Blvd in April 2019 to meet current arterial standards. Click here to view a project flyer with map. Design for a roundabout at Pumice Ave continues and construction bids will occur in Winter 2019/2020.
NW 9th & 10th St Waterline Replacements: SW Evergreen Ave between 9th and 11th Streets will receive complete pavement and base rock replacement to correct steeper than standard cross slope. SW 8th St will be reconstructed between Evergreen and Deschutes in conjunction with the Centennial Park Expansion project. After waterline replacement, SW 10th will be overlayed between Highland and Glacier, and between Glacier and Evergreen. SW 9th St will be overlayed between Deschutes and Black Butte Blvd.
Reservoir 6 Project: A new water reservoir was 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 included booster pumps to distribute up to 5,000 gallons of water per minute into the water system.
Eastside Sewer Interceptor: Construction is complete for the 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 relieved interim connection to the Dry Canyon sewer and will provide capacity for industrial development on the east side of Redmond. This project was 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.
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.
