2021 National Work Zone Awareness Week, April 26-30 - Drive Safe. Work Safe. Save Lives.
Each year in the spring, National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW) is held to bring national attention to motorist and worker safety and mobility issues in work zones. Since 1999, FHWA has worked with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) to coordinate and sponsor the event. The first national event was held at a work zone in Springfield, VA in April 2000. Over the years, other transportation partners have joined the effort to support NWZAW. In addition to a national event conducted each year, many States host their own NWZAW events.

City Council Adoption of Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) Requirements (February 11, 2021)
A Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) is a study that is required by a private developer to analyze the impacts that the proposed development would have on the road network. It helps to identify necessary improvements (if any) to offset those impacts to the transportation infrastructure. The new TIA Ordinance helps create a consistent standard among the development community, citizens, and staff to ensure minimum requirements for development approvals are met.

Street Maintenance to begin Fall 2020
The Transportation Department is pleased to announce the commencement of a new, year-long street maintenance contract scheduled to begin this Fall. The maintenance is to include full resurfacing of some streets, and preservation techniques (crack seal or patching) applied to others based on the severity of the road conditions.
The map below shows what streets have been designated for resurfacing or preservation within the given time period. Check back to track the progress on the map and see what streets will be under construction next. Street symbology on the map will change based on the status of the road (Completed, In-progress, Scheduled), and the corresponding infographics will track how close the maintenance is to being complete. In addition, affected residents and motorists will be notified by roadside signs before work is to begin in the area.
