About Transportation Engineering & Design

​Vision


Creating healthy, safe, efficient transportation and development.  Modesto's network of roads, bike paths, lanes and sidewalks provides safe places for you and your family to get around.  More of this network is being built each year, making Modesto a healthy, safe and connected community.

We strive to create a transportation network that more efficiently allows residents of Modesto to walk, bike, drive and ride transit to work every day.  This "Complete Streets" mindset will create a balanced transportation system that provides safe and convenient facilities for all users and all modes of transportation.

Transportation Engineering and Design provides the administration and management of a full spectrum of engineering, transportation and development projects and services within the City, ensuring that infrastructure and expansion enhances the environment and quality of life throughout Modesto.  Our goal is to design "Complete Streets" and encourage smart development that provides transportation choices in partnership with sustainable growth; this will create a healthy economically vibrant community.

  • Bike Corrals - We, along with the Downtown Modesto Partnership, installed the first "Bike Corral" in the City of Modesto.  It is located on the corner of 11th and J Street.
  • Bike Racks - We install and maintain publicly accessible bike racks throughout the City.
  • Complete Streets - We, working along with Urban Planners, design all road resurfacing projects with all users in mind.  This complete streets mindset will ensure that the network gets completed.
  • Curb Ramps - Every year hundreds of curb ramps are built, making it easier for those in wheelchairs and many others to move about in Modesto.
  • Parklets - We, along with the Urban Design Group of the Downtown Modesto Partnership installed the first "Parklet" located at the corner of 10th and J Street.
  • Safe Crossings - To increase safety and accessibility, we install median islands and crosswalks throughout Modesto.
