TRAFFIC ENGINEERING SERVICES FOR SMALL POLITICAL JURISDICTIONS

The document reviews the status of traffic engineering services as applied in cities and counties varying in population from 2,500 to 40,000. The data resulted from questionnaires sent to 50 states, 1,350 selected cities and counties, and interviews in two jurisdictions and one state in each respective FHWA Region. Alternate methods of providing traffic engineering services are identified and evaluated in relation to Highway Safety Program Standard 13 - Traffic Engineering. Parameters influencing delivery of services such as cost effectiveness, governmental relationships and constraints, community resources, and category of community are discussed.
