The Department of Public Works ensures the safe and orderly flow of cars and pedestrians throughout the city by providing and maintaining an efficient roadway system. This is accomplished through both traffic engineering and planning as well as maintenance activities.

Engineering & Planning

The Public Works Engineering Division strives to earn the confidence and respect of road users through the use of sound engineering practices and established engineering standards. In addition to conducting activities such as studies on stop sign and traffic signal requests and speed designations, the Engineering Division also serves as staff support to the City of Monterey Park Traffic Commission.
