Welcome to the El Paso County Colorado Department of Public Works website. We are committed to helping the public by providing the best possible service. On this site you can find information about Contracts and Procurement, Transportation, the County’s and City's Facilities and Fleet, and Security and Parking. Please take a few minutes to browse our site not only to learn about who we are and what we do, but to find answers to your questions and learn about new projects.

We pride ourselves on Customer Service, and through the links on the left you can report a problem regarding County transportation assets (roads, bridges, drainage, signs and signals, and right-of-way) as well as County facility assets.

Facilities Maintenance functions are executed by the Facilities Maintenance Section. Facility Maintenance maintains over 130 County-owned or leased buildings totaling more than 3,100,000 square feet of space. It also provides janitorial service, pest management and environmental remediation. They also maintain over 132 City of Colorado Springs-owned buildings totaling more than 1,500,000 square feet of space, and provide engineering services under the terms of a Service Level Agreement approved annually by both City and County. The link to the left will provide you with useful information about many of the County and City buildings.

The Security and Parking Section mission is to vigorously protect El Paso County assets (facilities, people, information, and physical assets) and provide professional parking services to employees and the public. The link on the left will provide you with more information, operating hours, and security officer employment details.

The Fleet Management Section maintains the County's vehicles and equipment fleet of more than 1,000 assets. The link to the left will provide you information on the fleet, environmental stewardship and consumer tips. Additionally, the Fleet Management link will guide you to the Fleet Management Advisory Board link.

Transportation functions are executed by two divisions within the Department of Public Works -- the Engineering Division and the Operations Division. Together, the two divisions manage the County's transportation network consisting of more than 2,000 miles of paved and gravel roads and related right-of-way assets. The Engineering Division's Traffic Engineering, Design, Construction Management, Real Estate and Infrastructure Planning Sections handle all aspects of the transportation system from policy and standards to planning to contract project execution. The Operations Division's Highway Section handles in-house maintenance and repair of County roads and bridges, drainage, signs and signals, and right-of-way. The link to the left will provide you information about current capital construction projects, transportation planning, road maintenance and other highway projects. Additionally, the Transportation link will guide you to the Highway Advisory Commission page.
