New Device Installation Requests

Stop sign and traffic signal installations must confirm to the U.S. Department of Transportation Manual On Uniform Traffic Control Devices. This manual requires that a study be conducted to determine if a new installation is warranted, which includes, among other things, traffic and pedestrian volumes, number and type of accidents at the location, and sight distances.

New installations of stop signs and traffic signals cannot occur unless a warrant study is conducted.
