Mission Statement

The Transportation and Traffic Operations Division includes four technical sections: Transportation, Traffic Operations, Design, and Survey. The Transportation Section coordinates the programming of many transportation-related roadway improvements such as new road construction, shoulder widening, sidewalks, bike lanes, capacity enhancements, traffic calming devices, roadway striping and re-striping, and ADA enhancements. The Traffic Operations Section provides the management, installation and maintenance of all signals and traffic control devices, performs traffic studies and analyses, and implemented a new Intelligent Transportation System. The Design Section essentially functions as an in-house design team to handle all design aspects of projects funded through the local option sales tax. The design team provides engineering services to all departments within the county. The Survey Section provides surveying services to internal clients and reviews externally completed surveys and subdivision plats for compliance with all applicable laws.

FY 2017-2018 Accomplishments

  • Continued to upgrade the county’s signalization system through ongoing implementation of Intelligent Transportation System and Advanced Traffic Management System concepts and designs.
  • Managed a $1.5 million Florida Department of Environmental Protection grant to upgrade an abandoned water and sewer system. The water system was completed this year and has been transferred to ECUA. The sewer system is in design.
  • Survey group completed over 180 surveys for various departments within the county. These projects consisted of 45 boundary, 11 topographic and bathymetric surveys, 80 right of way stakings, 31 legal descriptions and sketches for real estate acquisition, maintenance claim maps, and 15 preliminary and final subdivision plat review.
  • Funded the design of 4 miles of sidewalks and constructed 2 miles of sidewalks throughout the county.
  • Budgeted $100,000 for traffic calming and neighborhood enhancement projects which also included ADA upgrades, curb cuts, bus benches, radar speed signs and the installation of traffic calming devices like speed bumps, roadway signage and pavement markings.
  • DRC/Access Management staff assisted with the evaluation of 223 pre-applications, 182 initial applications and 160 final applications.
  • Secured millions in funding from external sources in federal and state grant dollars to offset the burden on the local tax base for many projects/programs. Grants secured were from the Federal Local Agency Program, Federal Transit Agency, County Incentive Program, and the Economic Development Trust Fund. 
  • An Engineering Specialists successfully renewed Traffic Operations Practitioner Specialist certification and Traffic Signal Operations Specialist requirements through September 2021. Currently, he is one of 10 certificate holders in the United States and the only person located in the region. 
  • The bucket truck continued to serve as a cost-savings measure to county taxpayers as staff was able to address certain repair and maintenance items for traffic signals rather than utilizing outside contractors.
  • Our Engineering QA/QC program provided an enhanced, focused perspective in the plan review process to help reduce potential errors, omissions and constructability issues.
