The Engineering Division of Public Works oversees contracts for total reconstruction of City streets and sidewalks (as opposed to resurfacing; see Construction Management). Reconstruction includes installation of under-surface street lighting systems, as well as the design and engineering of pedestrian ramps. The Engineering Division also conducts bridge inspections and coordinates bridge reconstruction through MassDOT.The Public Improvement Commission, the board that oversees any changes made to City street definitions, dimensions, naming, or ownership, is also part of Engineering Division.
