The Public Works Department plays a vital role in providing a myriad of City services to promote quality of life for the City of Riverside.
Our goal is to implement efficient and cost effective services to preserve and enhance our City streets, bike paths, and sanitary sewer system as well as promote sustainable programs to preserve our environment with clean storm drains, air quality programs and a solid waste collection system that successfully diverts 69% of citywide trash from landfills to recycling programs.

The City is proposing to restripe Brockton Avenue between Mission Inn Avenue and Central Avenue in an effort to encourage the use of alternate modes of transportation such as bicycling and walking and reduce vehicle use.
By restriping Brockton Avenue as proposed, the project will not only provide bike lanes, but will also facilitate entry and exit from side streets and driveways and move left turning vehicles out of the path of thru traffic by reducing the number of travel lanes and adding a continuous left turn lane.

In order to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases, the Northwest Mosquito and Vector Control District proposed to provide services to the portions of the City that they do not currently serve.
