All City Hall offices are closed, except the main customer service counter (which is now open Monday-Friday from 8AM-5PM), Community Development (which is now open Monday-Friday from 8AM-3PM), and the Permit Counter which is also open 8AM-5PM.

Vision Statement

Due to COVID-19 safety measures, our 3rd floor offices are temporarily closed. We can be reached via email or by leaving a phone message on our main line at (916) 434-3233.

The City of Lincoln observes the following holidays.
Engineering staff will not be responding to calls or emails during these times:

  • November 11th - Veteran's Day
  • November 25th – 26th – Thanksgiving
  • December 24th – December 31st - Holidays

The Engineering Department is focused on project and program support of activities that are primarily in the public right-of-way or are associated with public facilities.  These activities involving public facilities and infrastructure may include but are not limited to: roads, streets, bridges, utilities (i.e. water, sewer, reclaimed water, and stormwater), waterways, parks, City buildings and other facilities.  The Engineering staff manages and executes capital improvement projects that are approved within the City’s budget.  Capital improvement projects enhance public safety, improve quality of life, and expand economic development.  Recently the Engineering Department has been focused on developing a programmatic approach to replacing the City’s water distribution system, sewer collection system, and the rehabilitation of City streets.  

Inspection Services
The Construction Management Division inspects the installation of infrastructure for development projects and oversees any work that is performed within the public right-of-way for both capital improvement projects and work being performed by private developers or by utility companies.
