Traffic Signals

 Since 1999, the Engineering Department has been tasked with overseeing the City of Elizabethton's traffic signal system.  This includes; planning, securing funding, developing scope of services, plan review, construction over site, maintenance and maintaining a inventory of operational equipment. The City of Elizabethton Planning and Development office along with the Johnson City Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization (JCMTPO) assist with traffic signal planning and securing funding for new signal construction and signal upgrades.  Once funding and projects have been approved, the City Engineering Department works closely with TDOT in developing scope of services, construction plans and provides technical input during construction.  The City uses TDOT Standard Specifications for Roadway and Bridge Construction Section 730 along with TDOT Standard Traffic Operations Drawings as a minimum standard for all traffic signals within Elizabethton city limits.
