Transportation Projects at a Glance

Residents often ask about the status of projects or city infrastructure improvements. Many wonder why they don't see construction underway, when they have heard news of planned improvements. 

A Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is a dynamic community planning and fiscal management tool used to coordinate the location, timing, and financing of identified infrastructure projects over a multi-year period. These infrastructure projects can include things such as construction and renovation of roadways, parks and other city facilities. It can also include the acquisition or upgrade of major equipment, it can also identify installation of major technology systems needed to operate public facilities. It is critically important and one of the major responsibilities for a government entity to have a CIP.

The CIP is a working document and should be reviewed and updated annually to reflect changing community needs, priorities, and funding opportunities to ensure that the infrastructure exists to advance the community’s strategic and long-term goals and objectives. The Beaumont City Council just reviewed and approved the FY 2022/2023 CIP Plan at the June 21, 2022, City Council meeting.  You can view the CIP here.

Construction on a Capital Improvement Project is a process that, depending on size and magnitude, can take months or even years to complete.  Capital Improvement Projects are deeply complex with the following start to finish process:

STAGE 1: Identify - Identify City Infrastructure to be improved, such as parks, streets, transit, community facilities, etc. 

STAGE 2: Obtain Funding - Depending on the type of project and it's impact locally, regionally or beyond, funding sources can include one or more of the following: Grants, local, county, state, federal funding, and/or tax revenue.

STAGE 3: Design - Architects and engineers determine the scope of the project and develop a timeline, which includes environmental planning and design. This process can take as little as six months to more then 48 months depending on the complexity of the project.

STAGE 4: Construction- At the construction phase, the public will see the project start to take shape. 

STAGE 5: Completion - Every completed project ELEVATES our City!

To assist our residents in understanding City infrastructure and Capital Improvement Plans, we put together a Project Fact Sheet. This fact sheet identifies each of the projects that are currently in progress, it also provides details on what stage these projects are in, as well as if the project is funded or if funding is still being identified.
