The Traffic Signal Department has three employees, one supervisor and two technicians. The department is responsible for the installation, maintenance, repairs, improvements, and removals of all traffic signals in the city limits. Other responsibilities include signalized pedestrian crosswalks, signalized emergency vehicle exits, flashing warning signs and school signals, downtown streetlights and up lighting, civil defense (tornado) sirens, and maintain most local traffic signals outside the city limits. All intersections are tested on an annual basis to ensure correct operation of pedestrian buttons, vehicle detection, timings and power.
See our Report A Problem page if you need to report something.
