How can we get a traffic signal installed?
The installation of a traffic signal must also follow the guidelines and criteria set forth in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (TMUTCD). The warrants for a traffic signal are more complex than the warrants for the installation of an all-way stop. The TMUTCD requires an investigation of eight warrants that include, but are not limited to:

  • An evaluation of the traffic volumes approaching the intersection
  • An evaluation of the distribution of traffic throughout the day
  • An evaluation of the number of accidents at the intersection
