Capital Projects Division

The Capital Projects Division is responsible for the short and long range planning, design and construction of capital projects. Our goal is to provide a better service, increase safety and security and to improve infrastructure reliability for all Patterson residents.


Installation of new traffic signals and improvements to roads help ensure safer road conditions for our citizens.

Capital Projects consist of improvements made to the City's public infrastructure.  Some examples of these are:


  • Access Ramps
  • Accessibility Improvements
  • Bike-ways
  • Bridges
  • Curb and Gutters
  • Parks
  • Public Facilities
  • Sewer Utilities
  • Sidewalks
  • Storm Drain Utilities
  • Street Improvements with pavement rehabilitation
  • Street Widening
  • Traffic Signals

City facilities are also considered capital projects, and may include:

  • New or remodeled city buildings
  • Well Sites
  • Maintenance Yards
  • Public Safety Facilities (Fire Stations, Police Stations)
  • Waste and Wastewater Facilities
  • Community Use Facilities.
Capital Improvements Plans (CIP):
The City's short (1-3 years) and long (3+ years) term Capital Improvement Plans (CIP) are living documents, updated annually, that help identify current and future City needs. 

The plans give direction to staff, who then formulate a strategic plan to ensure delivery of each project.  Funding for each project varies based on numerous factors and the CIP helps to identify those early in the process.


DBE Policy Statement/DBE Program:
The City of Patterson receives Federal financial assistance from the Department of Transportation (DOT).  As a condition of receiving this assistance, the City is required to provide an assurance that it will comply with 49 CFR Part 26.

The City signed an agreement with Caltrans for implementation of the State DOT DBE Program for Federal Highway (FHWA) funds.  The City has established a separate DBE Program for DOT Grants administered by FTA.
