Traffic Engineering Overview
The responsibilities of the Traffic Engineering staff are to install, repair, replace and provide maintenance to the traffic signals and street signs under the Town's purview.  The Traffic Engineering staff also performs monthly signal maintenance, and responds to any Town signal problems 24-hours a day.  In addition, the Traffic Engineering staff also maintains inventory, and compiles data for internal traffic studies.  

The Traffic Engineering staff also coordinates with other regional jurisdictions and represents the Town on the PAG Transportation Systems Subcommittee, and the RTA Safety Working Group.

Pavement Management Overview
The functions of the Pavement Management staff are to perform inventory and compile data of the Town's system of roadways and to formulate pavement surface treatment recommendations and schedules.  The Pavement Management staff also monitors the construction of surface treatment projects for the Town, and represents the Town on the regional (PAG) Pavement Management Team.

The 2010/2011 ARRA1 funding provided money for overlays on sections of Tangerine Road, Rancho Vistoso Boulevard, Naranja Drive and Lambert Lane thus improving the pavement condition on 16.5 lane miles of pavement.  Our routine surface treatment program helped preserve the Town's systems of roads using advanced techniques on roughly 36 lane miles of Oro Valley pavement.
