The Elk River Engineering Department operates largely behind the scenes but its work directly affects resident quality of life. The department is responsible for all engineering and construction projects within the city. It assists all city departments with project development, planning, construction and management of infrastructure.
The engineering department is also responsible for city roadways. It undertook a major resurfacing project in 2017. The Pavement Management Program instituted the tracking of city street conditions to ensure proper maintenance.
