Traffic Division

Traffic Intro

The Traffic Division ensures the safe and efficient movement of people in the City.

The engineering staff approve traffic designs and standards, approve construction zone traffic control, investigate public requests, conduct traffic safety analysis, complete capital projects, review development plans, and provide traffic support to Public Works Engineering and the Community Development Department.

The signal maintenance crew members and traffic management center operators maintain and manage 200 traffic signals with synchronized operation using Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) devices to improve traffic flow throughout the City.

The signing and striping crew members maintain 20,000 signs and an area of street markings equivalent to 11 football fields!
