Traffic Signals and Signs and Pavement Markings

The City installs traffic signals and signs in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). This document, produced by the Federal Highway Administration, sets the standards for signals and signs.

Occasionally, the City will be asked to evaluate a street or intersection to consider a change in the regulations. In this case, the City would conduct a traffic study to determine if a change is warranted under the specifications of the MUTCD. Please contact the Engineering Department at 256-772-2565 to request a traffic study. To report damaged / missing signs or malfunctioning traffic lights, call 256-772-8490 or Let Us Know.
