Requests for New Traffic Signals
Before a traffic signal is installed, an engineering study must be performed to determine whether the signal is warranted based on traffic volumes, speeds and available “gaps” in traffic for turning vehicles. Specifications for signals and their placement, along with minimum requirements for their installation and use, are contained in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices . A new traffic signal costs between $150,000 and $300,000, so its installation must be carefully considered.
Basic information about traffic signals may be found on the Colorado Department of Transportation Traffic Guidelines & Information website .
To request an evaluation for a potential traffic signal, use the online Service Request Form or call 303-271-8461.
