Traffic Operations Center

Signal control software shows operators the communication status of signals

The Traffic Operations Center (TOC), located in City Hall, utilizes a computer-based traffic signal control system that monitors traffic conditions and system performance. The system can actively select appropriate signal timing and staff can change timing manually, if required. Sensors can also detect the passage of vehicles, vehicle speed, and the level of congestion on local streets. To supplement this information, closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance equipment is being deployed at critical locations throughout the City. The department has installed CCTV cameras at over 90 locations and new sites are being added.

The City currently operates over 700 signalized intersections, of which approximately 300 are currently connected to the City's TOC.

Operators are typically in the TOC from 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. monitoring traffic.
