Public Works maintains more than 80+ miles of roadway infrastructure. Responsibilities include pavement improvements and repairs, roadside vegetation control, street sweeping, drainage structures, signage, snow plowing and a variety of maintenance tasks. Review and inspection of new road development and driveway apron inspections. Vendor services such as: catch basin cleaning, pipe jetting, road sweeping, line painting, and tree removal and/or pruning supplemental department activities. The department is responsible for coordinating and operating the large furniture and appliance pick up offered to residents March, April, May, October and November by appointment only. Spring, summer and early autumn are the months that the road crew will begin their paving projects. We ask vehicular traffic to be patient if they see our crews out paving and to use extra caution when driving throughout the roads of Woodbridge while paving is in progress.
Public Works Projects
At the May 23, 2023 Special Meeting of the Board of Selectman, the Board voted unanimously to remove and dispose of three small accessory buildings at the Former Country Club of Woodbridge property. Due to safety concerns about these smaller structures, the Public Works Department will remove the Tennis Shed, Pool Filter Shed, and the outdoor bathroom. The work will begin in early June and take a few weeks for completion. Please contact Assistant Administrative Officer Karen Crosby at email@example.com with all inquiries.
