About Us

The goal of Highway and Traffic Divisions of Public Works is to provide for the safe and efficient movement of people and goods on City roads.

Highway and Traffic is among the more visible, more frequently seen group of City employees. Highway and Traffic is responsible for the maintenance of Traffic Signals, Traffic Signs, Pavement Markings and Parking Meters on city streets.

This group is also responsible for the maintenance of roadway and City owned bridges; they provide typical roadway related direct service to the public in such areas as winter snow plowing and sanding, pothole repair, sidewalk cleaning and repair, and litter removal.

Highway and Traffic also works closely with the DPW – Engineering Division and Department of Planning and Development  in reviewing and approving all plans regarding traffic, parking and traffic control devices.
