Traffic Engineering and Planning Program and Signal Improvements Program

The Transportation Division installs and maintains traffic signals, traffic signs, street markers, and signs for other divisions as warranted by the Federal Highway Administration Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (M.U.T.C.D.) through the Traffic Control and Maintenance Program. This program also performs traffic studies and traffic counts as needed. 

The location of new traffic signal projects is determined as warrants are met as specified in the Federal Highway Administration Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (M.U.T.C.D.) and when related street projects are completed.  The purpose of a traffic signal installation is to assign vehicle right of way and improve the safety of vehicles and pedestrians in the City. 

Upgrades to existing signals include outfitting signal control cabinets with battery backups, upgrades to overhead video detection, and replacing wooden or deteriorated metal poles with galvanized steel poles.  The City has all existing traffic signals on the citywide closed loop radio signal system and Windows NT CL Mats Peek operating system.  All new installations will include overhead video detection, LED signal heads, and be on the signal system network.

Continued planning and preparation is underway for the implementation of a wireless ethernet traffic signal communication system.  This system will connect both the traffic signal controller and the video detection equipment to the central location thereby enabling staff to visually monitor traffic movement to enable real-time responses to problems as needed.
