Capital Improvement Program
Public Works has a comprehensive program for improving infrastructure within the unincorporated areas of the County of San Diego. The Capital Improvement Program consists of improvements to roads and bridges; facilities at the eight County-owned and operated airports and airstrips; flood control facilities in unincorporated developed areas; and wastewater facilities owned and operated by the County. These improvements help ensure that neighborhoods are safe for residents to live, work and play; support environments that foster viable, livable communities while bolstering economic growth; make it easier for residents to lead healthy lives while improving opportunities for children and adults; and provide equitable access to our residents.
The Capital Improvement Program Project Development Section consists of project management teams, team leaders, design engineers, utility and right of way coordinators, and a contract administration group.
The Department of Public Works Project Development Section is responsible for overall management and coordination of planning, budget, design, environmental clearance and permitting, right-of-way acquisition and utility coordination for a wide variety of capital projects, including road, bridge, flood control, drainage, airport, and wastewater projects. Funds are approved by the Board of Supervisors though a yearly Detailed Work Program. In a typical fiscal year, over 120 projects are active in various stages of completion. The Capital Improvement Program anticipated budget for Fiscal Year 2021-22 is over $150 million.
