About UsThe traffic operations division of the Engineering Department for the City of Hutchinson oversees two main activities:
- Traffic regulatory measures
- Traffic control devices
Traffic control devices include fundamentals of the design, installation, operation, and maintenance of traffic signs, signals, pavement markings, channelization devices, and temporary traffic control for construction zones to provide the basis for intelligent application of these devices to specific situations.
Prior to the adoption of a regulatory measure or the use of a traffic control device, it is necessary to examine the characteristics, advantages, disadvantages, warrants, and prerequisite studies to establish justification and legality.
