Roadways that operate efficiently and safely for all road users are essential for sustainability, growth, and improving the quality of life in San Diego County. The Traffic Engineering Section strives to achieve and maintain a safe and efficient County Maintained Road system for motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and equestrians. Examples of possible traffic safety improvements include traffic signals, traffic signs, striping, and guard rail. Resident concerns about traffic impacts on their neighborhood may also be addressed by Traffic Engineering through traffic calming techniques like speed humps, chicanes, and roundabouts. Traffic Engineering conducts and evaluates traffic studies to determine what measures are necessary.
