Public Works

The Public Works Department is comprised of Streets; Fleet Maintenance; Engineering Services; Parks, Buildings & Grounds; and Capital Projects. Our goal is to provide and maintain infrastructure and recreational facilities that are safe, functional, and aesthetically pleasing for our citizens and the general public.

The City of Woodland Park recommends citizens visit the EPA Watersheds webpage to obtain valuable information on stormwater and how to reduce stormwater pollution and impacts in our community.

KUDOS!

The City would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Standard Pavement, the local firm who has generously donated a sealcoat application for the parking lot at Crestwood Park on Valley View Drive.

Sealcoating acts as a waterproofing agent, minimizing the rate at which water enters the asphalt. This process helps prevent the seepage of water and moisture from rain and snow, thus preventing damage from freeze-thaw cycles, which frequently causes cracks to develop. It also resists gas, diesel fuel, oil, salt and chemical penetration, that can further break down the bond between the aggregate material and liquid asphalt. New sealcoating can preserve the resilience of asphalt surfaces while helping to hide small cracks, patches and rough spots too. This also helps make the lines in the parking lot more visible. Sealcoating is essential in pavement preservation and extending the life of asphalt pavement.

    

Grey asphalt is thirsty asphalt. When it is first installed, it’s black, rock aggregate material, held together by tar. But over time, UV rays from the sun and water (especially from snow-melt) causes the tar to oxidize , then it turns gray and brittle. A coal tar emulsion sealer, used by most professionals, is designed to soak into the asphalt, rejuvenate that tar binder, unlike the products sold in bulk at hardware stores, which only create a surface film.
