Traffic Signal Removal Studies

A number of traffic signals will be studied for removal, as the volume of traffic may no longer warrant the use of expensive to maintain traffic signals. In ongoing efforts to keep public works assets as inexpensive to maintain as possible, the City will remove as many traffic signals as safely possible by following the removal procedure set out by ITE guidelines and the Traffic Board
