The Signal Timing 5 project is the latest in a series of projects to help local agencies retime traffic signals in the region.  The goal of the project is to time a 1/3 of the signals each year in three-year cycles.  For 2019, the project is in its last year.  It is planned that nine (9) corridors, roughly 100 intersections, will have new timing implemented.  In the process, reevaluation of the clearance intervals and pedestrian crossing times will be performed at each intersection to comply with current standards.  The project is funded through the Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality (CMAQ) program.  The schedule of work for a typical corridor consists of the following:

  •  Collect traffic & signal data
  •  Input timings into model and evaluate existing signal timing
  •  Develop new timing and implement in the field
  •  Fine-tune timing, and conducting before-after studies.

The following is a tentative list for new timing to be implemented in 2019.

  • E McCarran Blvd (14 Signals) – Greg St to Probasco Way, including Greg St @ Stanford & Spice Island
  • Moana Ln (4 Signals) – Kietzke Ln to Neil Rd
  • Plumb Ln (4 Signals) – Kietzke Ln to Terminal

  • Prater Way (8 Signals) – Galletti Way to 12th St
  • Sutro St (8 Signals) – Ryland Ave to E 9th St
  • Oddie Blvd (9 Signals) – Sutro St to Rock Blvd
  • Isolated Intersections (111 signals left) – Various Signals in the Region

  • Sutro St (12 Signals) – Ryland Ave to E 9th St, including: Kuenzli/Locust, 2nd/Manuel, Ryland/Locust, Ryland/Mill – New Timing to be tested/fine-tuned early July.
