Engineering Department Functions
The City of Dublin Engineering Department prepares design work and construction contracts for improvements to the city’s transportation, water, sewer, and natural gas systems.  Requests for improvements to these facilities are evaluated individually and alternative solutions are formulated to develop the most cost-effective means of addressing problems.

The Engineering Department provides full inspection on each contract awarded through the City of Dublin, monitoring construction to ensure that workmanship and materials are in conformance with the written plans and specifications.

 Street Paving Program 
The Engineering Department inspects streets for condition and develops annual plan for repair and maintenance of existing streets; prepares program for bidding; oversees operations of paving contractors for compliance with construction specifications of the program; maintains records of street maintenance for review for future needs.

Streets are evaluated for resurfacing using the Georgia Department of Transportation’s PACES program. PACES stands for Pavement Condition Evaluation System. The system is a method of taking the existing observed condition of a pavement surface and assigning a score to a particular roadway. Other factors in addition to existing pavement condition that are considered are what is served by a particular road and the ADDT(average annual daily traffic) of that roadway. Please see a link to the PACES program for additional information.
