Traffic Signal Maintenance

The Maintenance and Operations Division is responsible for 157 traffic signals, pedestrian signals, and warning flashers within the City of Elk Grove. Traffic signals are our top priority. When there is a problem, we respond promptly. Our signal technicians work around the clock to keep signals functioning properly. All signalized intersections are on a quarterly preventative maintenance schedule. Safety monitors are installed at all intersections to prevent conflicting green lights from being displayed. The monitors are thoroughly inspected and tested annually.
