Welcome to Public Works
As Public Works Director, please allow me to welcome you to the Duncanville Public Works website. This site has been designed with the goal of providing a better, more useful resource for our citizens and website visitors.
The Public Works Department provides many of the basic services that affect the daily lives of everyone who lives and works in Duncanville. Primarily, the department is responsible for the administration, planning, maintenance, construction management, and engineering of the City’s infrastructure. The goal through annual budgets and capital improvements programs is to provide the best infrastructure possible as we maintain 155 miles of streets, 36 miles of alleys, 17 bridges, all roadside channels, 192 miles of water lines, 154 miles of sewer lines, and the entire fleet to support each City department. These operations are located at the Service Center located at 330 Shady Trail. The Engineering, Planning and Zoning, Floodplain Management, Building Inspection, Health Inspection, Code Services, and Stormwater Quality divisions are located at City Hall, 203 East Wheatland Road.
I hope you find our website interesting and useful. Please visit our website often, as new content and features are added regularly. And, of course, I welcome your thoughts and ideas on how we can improve our website and Public Works operations in general.
