Welcome to Long Beach Public Works Department
When you travel on a City street, walk on the sidewalks, dispose of garbage and enjoy the shade of a City-owned tree, you are benefiting from the diverse range of services that the Public Works Department provides. These are some of the most basic and critical services in our lives, yet many of us take them for granted.
The Public Works Department strives to operate, preserve, and enhance the City's physical infrastructure and transportation systems. The Department provides a variety of community services including the repair, rehabilitation and general upkeep of City streets, trees, sidewalks, and City structures. We also provide emergency support services throughout the City.
In an effort to support COVID-19 recovery for residents and businesses, the Long Beach City Council approved an Open Streets Initiative to temporarily transform public areas into safe spaces for physically-distanced activity. This program will remain in place through October 31, 2020 or until outdoor physical distancing is no longer required.
