As the Transportation Division has overall responsibility for the City’s rights-of-way, our commitment is to safely execute tasks, to work and act in a professional manner, to complete tasks with exceptional quality thereby setting the standard for others to follow, and to perform tasks efficiently so that public funds are expended appropriately.
We focus our actions and activities upon improving the appearance, ride-ability, and safety of the City's streets and rights-of-way thereby enhancing the City’s image, mobility, and property values which are all important factors in attracting and retaining citizens.
We endeavor to implement Roanoke's comprehensive plan by providing a safe and attractive environment for all right-of-way users. We believe that well-maintained streets having appropriate pedestrian and bicycle accommodations, smooth surfaces, good drainage, as well as appropriate traffic signs and markings play a vital part in improving the City’s economic base.
