Welcome to the City of Long Beach Public Works Department

When you travel on a City street, walk on the sidewalks, travel through the airport, 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.
