Public Works


We provide public works services in a responsive, efficient, and cost effective manner.


The Department of Public Works was formed on January 1, 1985, from the former County Road Department, a portion of the Department of County Engineer-Facilities, and the County Flood Control District. In 1995, capital projects responsibilities and 156 staff members previously assigned to the Internal Services Department were also incorporated into Public Works.

Department of Public Works Employees
Divided into 21 divisions, the Department has over 3,800 employees in approximately 450 separate job classifications, including professional, technical, clerical, skilled craft, and unskilled workers. The Department is responsible for the design, construction, operation, maintenance, and repair of roads, bridges, airports, sewers, water supply, flood control and water conservation facilities; and for the design and construction of capital projects. Additional responsibilities include regulatory and ministerial programs for the County of Los Angeles, Los Angeles County Flood Control District, other special districts, and contract cities that request services. A 24-hour Emergency Operations Center is maintained to respond to problems reported by the public and other agencies as well as major emergencies, such as floods, windstorms, snowstorms, earthquakes, etc., and to monitor various Department facilities. The Department protects property and promotes public safety for those we serve now and in the future. By striving to increase productivity and efficiency while continuing to emphasize and to provide the highest levels of service, the Department looks forward to successfully meeting the challenges of the future through new technology and high standards.
