The Traffic Engineering Division administers programs that promote safe and efficient movement on the City's transportation system.
We strive to reduce traffic congestion and improve traffic safety by analyzing, planning, and recommending improvements to the City's traffic circulation system; oversee the design of streets and traffic control devices to ensure compliance with City, state, and federal laws, standards and guidelines; conduct traffic safety evaluations and studies; operate the City's traffic Signal and Communications System; seek grant funding opportunities for transportation related projects; and ensure compliance with state and federal mandated transportation related programs.
The objective of traffic calming is to improve the livability of neighborhoods while maintaining a safe and efficient arterial street system.
