The Engineering Department provides our community with a safe, reliable, adequate water supply, wastewater collection and treatment facilities, storm water collection and treatment systems, and transportation infrastructure including sidewalks, residential streets, collector streets, arterial roadways, and traffic control devices while conserving, protecting, and enhancing public health and safety, the quality of life, and local environmental resources.

Bidding on City Improvement Jobs
Staff accepts bids and contracts specific construction jobs with the private sector. If you are interested in bidding a job, contact the Engineering Department. When a construction job becomes necessary, notification of open construction bidding is published in the Leander Ledger newspaper.
In 2007 the City adopted a new “Leander Roadway Plan”. The last time the Roadway Plan was updated was January, 2003. Since then the City has grown from approximately 15,000 to 30,000+ in population and significant new areas have been annexed into the City and ETJ. In order to keep the plan as affordable as possible for both the public and private sectors, to maintain pedestrian friendly streets, and to avoid unnecessary neighborhood divisions, the plan is designed to add the minimum number of arterial streets possible, to keep the streets from being wider than is absolutely necessary, and to rely on a system of collector streets to provide for circulation within the City. Staff believes that the plan is balanced to provide for healthy growth while maintaining affordability and neighborhood integrity.
