Engineering Division

The Engineering Division plans, designs, administers, and supervises infrastructure improvement projects constructed within the City of Oak Park. These projects include water main, sanitary sewer, storm drainage, roads, sidewalks, and parking areas for both public and private infrastructure. The Division maintains engineering and construction standards and provides street and development maps. They are also responsible for coordinating with County, State and Federal agencies to ensure compliance with current regulations. The  Engineering staff stays very busy throughout the entire year.

Generally, the Engineering Division notifies residents in advance of major street, sidewalk, water, or sewer projects. Likewise, residents should feel comfortable calling the Engineering Division for burned-out street lights, malfunctioning traffic signals, dangerous sidewalks, and water leaks on public property.

Following are three maps that provide detail on the sidewalk repair program, sewer cleaning efforts, and construction projects throughout the City.
