What We Do
Traffic Engineering works on projects and programs to improve the traffic safety of the streets in the City. Changes initiated by the Traffic Engineering Division are the result of studies to determine if a situation meets a set of standards, called "warrants." These warrants have been established by state and federal guidelines through years of engineering practice to provide uniform guidelines. If a particular circumstance meets the criteria, the guidelines are followed to eliminate a potential safety hazard.
Lastly, the Traffic Engineering Division performs field surveys of high accident locations and locations which experience congestion and initiates remedial traffic improvements, investigates all requests for traffic improvements, and takes any necessary corrective actions.
As Chula Vista continues to grow, so does the number of cars, bicycles and pedestrians traveling on City streets. The Neighborhood Traffic and Pedestrian Safety Program is designed to call attention to the safety and quality of life of the pedestrians, bicyclists, and motoring public within Chula Vista. There are four main goals to the program:
- Implement neighborhood traffic calming
- Reduce intersection collisions
- Improve pedestrian safety and vehicular circulation adjacent to schools
- Reduce accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists
- Frequently Asked Questions (Traffic Related)
- Safe Routes to School Maps
- New Signal Installed Called the "HAWK"
- Neighborhood Traffic Calming
- Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Programs
- Safety Commission
- Speed Hump Policy
- Vehicular Volume Counts
- Truck Routes | Map
