The employees of the Department of Public Works strive to provide efficient, cost-effective and high quality services to the citizens of the City of Fairfax.

The largest department in the City of Fairfax, consisting of four divisions, Public Works is responsible for functions that keep the City operating.

Fairfax City Transportation Division

The goal of the Transportation Division is to provide a safe, functional and attractive multi-modal network of sidewalks, bicycle paths, public transportation options and roadways within the City of Fairfax.

Transportation planning in the City should be viewed from both the local and regional perspectives. The City of Fairfax, located 15 miles outside of Washington, D.C., is centrally located within the D.C. metropolitan area.  The City’s multimodal transportation system, comprised of public transportation, bicycle routes, sidewalks, and roadways, provides important transportation connections within both the City and the region.
