TRAFFIC ENGINEERING FOR SMALL CITIES AND COUNTIES

Guidelines are presented for providing safe and efficient street operation. These guidelines which reflect urban growth potentials and are developed from experience in typical jurisdictions, may be changed to fit local conditions. The decision-making process for street operation must be part of the overall process for land use planning, street design and traffic control. Responsibilities for these functions must be assigned to certain key elements (traffic planning, design, operations and control, surveillance, and advisory committees) and best centralized under the direction of a full-time traffic engineer. In small cities and counties they may be assigned to the official responsible for street design, construction, and maintenance operations. The administrative procedures for traffic engineering are discussed under four categories: plan review, traffic control device installation and maintenance, and traffic surveys and records. Master street plans, subdivision street plans, street improvement or construction plans, land development and improvement plans, traffic surveys and records are also discussed.
