Taking It to the Streets
Constructing New Roads in Midland: The Engineering Department manages the construction, reconstruction
and resurfacing of approximately four to five miles of roadway in the
city of Midland each year. Crack sealing and surface treatments are also completed
as maintenance operations on Midland's street system to extend the life
of existing pavement surfaces.
The department provides engineering
services involving all design, plan and specification preparation,
plus construction management and inspection of
all streets installed within the city of
Midland, including new subdivision streets.

repairs, or minor cracks in the roadway may be submitted to DPS at any time during the year.

Utility Construction and Maintenance
The Engineering Department provides services involving all design, construction management and inspection of
all new sewers and water mains installed within the city of
It is important to give appropriate consideration to the vast
network of underground utilities located in the city right-of-way. The
Engineering Department gives considerable thought to the design and
construction of underground utilities to keep public water and sewer
lines separate from private utilities such as gas, electric, cable TV,
and telephone lines. The department also works to minimize other
potential conflicts that could arise with proposed new City utilities.
Over time and with continual use, the City's underground utilities
(water and sewer) can deteriorate and/or require occasional extensive maintenance.
The Engineering Department reviews available
information to decide whether or not to perform
improvements in conjunction with street reconstruction projects.
Public Notification of City Construction Projects
Keeping citizens notified of upcoming and ongoing construction
projects within and around the city of Midland is a very important part
of every construction project. Sending letters to residents whose
property fronts areas slated for public improvements is often
incorporated into the beginning stages of our public notification plan.
Press releases are then sent to local
newspapers, radio and television stations and other media outlets, and
mass mailings are often sent to homeowners who may be affected by proposed street
closures or traffic restrictions in City construction zones.
The City also provides almost daily
updates on a
Construction Updates page on this website, complete with
maps (as available), detour routes, and project start/end dates.
It is a good idea to bookmark the Construction Updates page for
ease of viewing as projects start and end, especially during the
busy construction season of approximately April-November each
