Public Works releases annual report

Thursday, February 6, 2020 by Tai Moses

The Austin Public Works Department has published its 2019 Annual Report, which showcases “how the department built and maintained Austin’s public infrastructure, including our roadways, sidewalks, trail system, bridges and more,” according to a news release. The report, which is available online, is a snapshot of accomplishments ranging from potholes filled (2,127) to miles of new sidewalk (13) to the number of students trained in how to safely cross the street (48,200). Aside from infrastructure improvements, the report includes descriptions of crossing guard duties, partnerships with neighborhood groups, and hundreds of other projects undertaken by the department’s 700-person staff. Austin Assistant City Manager Gina Fiandaca said, “Our Public Works employees continue to exceed expectations, whether they are delivering new fire stations, working in the Texas heat to maintain our roads, and everything in between. Austin residents and visitors alike should join me in applauding the city’s Public Works Department for the great work they are doing on our behalf.” Read the report online here.
