The Engineering Department provides planning, engineering, and maintenance services for Addison's infrastructure including streets, traffic signals, drainage, water and wastewater. We oversee implementation of capital improvements and provide thorough engineering review of all new development and inspection services for construction projects. We strive to integrate community concern into each project.
