Maintenance & Traffic Management

With the City growing and more cars on our streets, traffic congestion is a major challenge. We are working to keep traffic moving and to maintain our roads and transportation infrastructure. We are also taking action to meet the needs of all street users. We are investing in new infrastructure and amenities that improve the operation of our transportation system for all modes of travel.

Road Classification System

A road classification system designates streets into different groups or classes according to the type of service each group is intended to provide. This is a fundamental tool for urban development and road management.
