PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Administration provides management and coordination of the division's line operations. These operations include the planning, design, engineering, construction, and maintenance of all traffic control devices for County maintained roads (traffic signals, signs, and markings). Broward Municipal Services District services include school crossing guards and street lighting installation and maintenance. Traffic signal maintenance and construction are also performed on all Florida Department of Transportation designated roadways.

BUDGET COMMENTS

The Broward County Traffic Engineering Division (BCTED) was established in 1976 by merging the traffic engineering functions of the Cities of Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood with the County’s Traffic Engineering Division. This consolidation provides uniform Countywide traffic control and maintenance of a coordinated traffic signal control system.

Of the 31 cities in Broward County, the Division provides complete traffic engineering services to 27 of them and provides modified traffic engineering services (on designated roadways) to Plantation and Wilton Manors.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Traffic data such as machine and turning movement, traffic volume counts, delay studies, speed studies, accident analyses, existing condition diagrams, and pedestrian movement counts are collected and analyzed. The end product of investigations and reports is completed work orders.

BUDGET COMMENTS

The number of traffic studies conducted results from citizen requests for new and modified signalized intersections and increased traffic volumes. Also, work orders are generated to replace older traffic control devices with more modern, energy efficient equipment.

This section performs studies and on-site surveys, and responds to telephone and written requests. Work orders vary in scope from the routine maintenance of signs and pavement markings to the redesign of a signalized intersection and/or the intersection geometrics.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Traffic Signs are fabricated in the Division’s sign shop and traffic control workers install, maintain, and replace essential traffic signs. Other crews perform field layout, application of paint, thermoplastic, raised reflectors, and pavement marking materials for roadway regulations.

BUDGET COMMENTS

The use of a centerline truck to install pavement markings and the use of durable materials like thermoplastic minimizes yearly maintenance of crosswalks and other pavement markings.

The Division provides pavement marking and signing services in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

Traffic signs and markings appropriations are supplemented in the capital fund.

In FY21, one vacant position is reduced as a result of declining gas tax and sales tax revenues.
