Preserve + Operate

Keeping you informed of the progress of our two-year work plan, which goals we've met and which goals we're still working toward.

Plan for a Lifetime Designing and budgeting not only for the present moment, but for the lifetime of care and maintenance that must necessarily follow.

Preserve Investments Preserving the investments made requires the timely identification and resolution of issues before they become more serious and costly. 
Coordinate Activities Coordinating activities, better scheduling of pavement cuts, and combining resources and activities for street investment, we can prolong the usable life of our assets, ensure adequate rehabilitation, and leverage joint resources.

Innovate, Communicate and Collaborate on Preservation Today we can be innovators in the industry by rethinking some basic approaches to infrastructure maintenance by partnering with communities, and investing more resources into the streets that create value for our city and utilities. 

Optimize Operations We can take measures to standardize our operations to make them more clear, consistent, predictable and accessible to both the public and ourselves. PBOT is now one of the leanest and most efficient city DOTs. We will strive to continue to find ways to streamline and simplify our business practices.
