The Streets division is responsible for providing our citizens with safe and well-maintained transportation and storm conveyance systems. Management of our streets infrastructure includes proactive maintenance, timely repair, and forward planning. These goals are accomplished through effective management and may be measured by our fiduciary financial approach, responsive customer service, and priority mitigation of potential risks to traffic systems.

What are Traffic Signal Warrant Studies?
A traffic signal warrant study reviews 9 critical aspects of an intersection (warrants). This information is then used to determine whether a traffic signal is needed. The warrants include:
|1A||Eight Hour Volume – Minimum Vehicular Volume (70% & 56%)|
|1B||Eight Hour Volume – Interruption of Continuous Traffic (70% & 56%)|
|2||Four Hour Vehicular Volume|
|6||Coordinated Signal System|
|9||Intersection Near a RR Grade Crossing|
