The Design Engineering Section has about 36 staff members responsible for the preparation of plans and specifications necessary to successfully construct the various types of infrastructure improvements within San Diego County.

Assignments begin with preliminary engineering evaluations, where various parts of a project are evaluated and the priority of the project is assigned based on its benefit to the taxpayer. The process ends in the award of a construction project to the lowest responsible bidder.
Project types include road improvements, stormwater collection/conveyance systems, bridges, airport improvements and other miscellaneous assignments.

In addition, all consultant/construction contracts are solicited and awarded through this section. Staff also support the Construction Engineering Section, which monitors contractor compliance during the construction phase of all projects.
