This paper aims to explore qualitatively the concept of implementing public policy in infrastructure development in the Municipality of Surabaya. That the number of roads in Surabaya is not balanced with the increase in the number of vehicles. For this reason, the central government proposed the construction of a mid-city toll road, but the Surabaya Municipality Government refused because the construction of the city toll road was considered unable to solve the Surabaya traffic problem, namely congestion. So that the Surabaya Municipality Government still wants to build infrastructure, namely the frontage road, on the east and west of Ahmad Yani frontage road. The construction of the frontage road, it has reduced traffic congestion on Ahmad Yani frontage road, especially around Wonokromo and East Java Province Logistics Agency. The construction of Ahmad Yani frontage road is also a form of innovation in the implementation of public policy because so far the regional government has always followed what was suggested by the central government. In the next development, Surabaya Municipality not only built a frontage road, it was only limited to road Ahmad Yani, because in the future it was expected to connect to the road in the Sidoarjo Regency.
