What the Public Works Department Does

The quality of life for those who live, work, and play in Topeka depends on the quality of the city’s infrastructure: smooth streets, well-engineered projects, well-managed downtown parking, and well-maintained city assets all lead to a better way of life.

The City of Topeka’s Public Works Department, nationally recognized through accreditation by the American Public Works Association, strives to meet our current and future needs. A well-run organization consisting of Engineering, Streets, Maintenance, Traffic Signs and Signals, Forestry, Parking, Fleet, and GIS Management ensures public funds are spent on projects and services approved by you through your local City Council representative.
