Construction projects designed to enhance the community's quality of life and to protect the City's investment in municipal facilities are managed by the Public Works Department
. Construction projects undertaken by private parties are regulated by the State Building Code whenever a building or structure is constructed, enlarged, altered, repaired, moved, or converted to another use. The Development Services Division
of the Community Development Department issues building permits
and monitors private construction. Permit information is available online at corvallispermits.com
You can save yourself time and inconvenience by avoiding construction areas. Announcements of Public Works construction projects are published in the Gazette-Times FYI column. Schedules for Public Works projects shown below are based on the most current information available and are subject to change.
Always remember to drive carefully through construction zones, for the workers' safety and your own. If you have questions about these projects or other maintenance activity in your neighborhood, please email
or call Public Works at 541-766-6916.
