Public Works

Dunwoody's infrastructure -- its streets and sidewalks, stormwater pipes and conveyances, traffic signs and signals, and all the behind-the-scenes equipment and structures that form the physical backbone of the city -- are in the care of the Public Works Department.

The Public Works Department is comprised of the Capital Projects, Stormwater, Traffic, and Operations and Maintenance divisions. Employees of each of these divisions efficiently and responsibly care for:

310 lane miles of pavement                     69 linear miles of sidewalk

69 miles of stormwater pipes                 18,700 stormwater structures

60 traffic signals                                          4,000 traffic signs
