The Traffic Engineering Division is responsible for providing the necessary information, guidance and safety standards along the City’s streets and sidewalks, using traffic signals, signs and pavement markings, to help ensure a safe and efficient experience for all users.

We are also involved in the planning and design of new transportation infrastructure improvements, the issuance and enforcement of permits to allow temporary occupancy of streets/sidewalks for construction purposes and have a team of skilled technicians that install and maintain the communication systems for emergency service vehicles.
