Mission Statement

Thank you for visiting the City of Sun Prairie's Engineering Department webpage. The department provides a wide array of municipal engineering services. The mission of the city Engineering Department is to manage the development and maintenance of the city's infrastructure in a fiscally prudent and professional manner.

  • Provide engineering oversight for the city's stormwater utility.
  • Develop construction schedules for the city's street, storm sewer, and pedestrian improvement projects.

N Bird Street Reconstruction Project Update -

Phase 2 of the project should wrap up today and the entire street should be open to traffic by noon tomorrow. There are a few punch list items to be addressed next week, however these can be accomplished under traffic. I would like to thank everyone for their patience and cooperation, it certainly helped the City and the contractor complete the project in a timely manner.
I have attached a restoration tips sheet for those that are adjacent to the work and have had their yards and/or terraces restored with seed and mulch.
