Streets, Sidewalks & Multi-Use Trails

The City of Billings Public Works Department maintains over 500 miles of streets, alleys, sidewalks and multi-use trails. Operations include maintenance, engineering services and construction management. 

The annual CIP program supports these projects through fees for services and special assessments.

Area Sweeping Program

The Area Sweeping Program allows limited personnel and equipment to efficiently and effectively sweep the City's extensive street system. The current program has five areas defined within the City with an equipment operator assigned to each area.

Public Resources
Public response to the Area Sweeping Program has been positive due to the consistency of the operation, residents becoming familiar with a uniform service and a sweeping frequency that accommodates environmental concerns.
