Who We Are
The Capital Projects Division consists of engineers and technicians who are responsible for the inventory, construction, major repair, and maintenance of assets and infrastructure owned by the City. Examples of assets and infrastructure are buildings, parks, streets, storm drains and sewers. Our Projects Map will show you where all our projects are this year.
Streets Confirmed for Rehabilitation were presented to City Council by Capital Projects.
City of Reno's road closure information shows current construction traffic control.
We provide engineering, surveying and project management services for Public Works and other City departments, such as the parks department and Police and Fire. We oversee the design and construction of new facilities as well as improvements to existing facilities. We work closely with contractors and consultants to ensure all assets are built to city specifications and stay within budgeted limits. It is our job to maintain and protect your investment.

Excavation & Encroachment Permits
The City of Reno requires all contractors who perform work within the right of way to be licensed and bonded with the City. To be added to the City's list of licensed and bonded contractors please review the criteria and submit a completed Contractor's application.
Once contractors are bonded they may apply for an excavation and encroachment permit to work within the City right of way. Working without a permit can result in penalties in the amount of triple the total permit fees for a first offense and quadruple the amount for the second offense.
Permit applications, drawings, and traffic control plans are submitted to Capital Projects at City Hall, 1 E. First Street, 8th Floor, where they are reviewed and approved. Once they are approved, contractors obtain their permit at 1 E. First Street, 2nd Floor. Approval time for most standard applications is approximately three business days.
Special Assessment Districts
A Special Assessment District (SAD) is an arrangement between property owners and the City of Reno to help fund infrastructure improvements and benefit the adjacent property owners.
SADs are created for the City's Neighborhood Street Rehabilitation projects as well as the Regional Transportation Commission's (RTC) arterial and collector street rehabilitation projects. SADs are typically created for street projects. Sometimes SADs are created by petition for commercial or industrial development opportunities or where participants desire to bring their infrastructure up to City standards so they can be accepted and maintained by the City.
For more information please visit the Special Assessment District web page or call (775) 334-2548.
