The Traffic Engineering Section of the Public Works Department facilitates the safe and efficient movement of traffic within the city by applying state-of-the-art traffic and transportation engineering technology and methods.

We strive to optimize traffic flow on arterial streets, enhance roadway, neighborhood and school zone safety, and improve traffic management citywide.

Through the implementation and maintenance of traffic tools and measures, we are able to improve roadway conditions, maximize intersection operations, heighten driver awareness, and increase public safety.
