An insistence on the highest standards for our physical infrastructure; streets and roads, signals, pedestrian, bicycle trails, and other facilities guide San Ramon's Traffic Engineering philosophy. This concern for high quality in our facilities is driven by the crucial importance of safety for the people who rely on, and use, the City’s transportation system every day. Regular monitoring of the system’s performance through traffic counts, speed surveys, and accident records provides the feedback needed to identify problems and develop effective traffic engineering solutions.

The Traffic Engineering Section provides general traffic engineering support services, traffic signal system operations management, traffic signal system design, traffic signal timing, capital project management, traffic data collection, plan review for Encroachment Permits and Capital Improvement Projects, sight clearance inspections, and responses to citizen inquiries and requests.

Traffic Engineers work closely with the Police Department to identify problem locations, which might benefit from increased enforcement activity. Traffic engineers conduct vehicle speed surveys on major streets as required by state law to enable our Police to use radar enforcement of speed limits.

Intelligent Transportation System

Map of ITS Proposed and Planned Infrastructure

The City of San Ramon's Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Master Plan defines the essential ITS technology and strategies needed to take full advantage of the City’s communication and traffic signal system, and to achieve the City’s Smart City goals.

The ITS Master Plan process began with an inventory and assessment of the City’s existing infrastructure.

Next, key City staff participated in a Needs Assessment workshop to establish a vision and goals for the ITS Master Plan, and to identify key needs that would help shape the recommendations of the Plan.

Staff identified gaps in the ITS fiber optic network, and developed strategies to eliminate these gaps and account for planned communications infrastructure.

Finally, the overall set of planned communications infrastructure was divided into segments, costs were determined for each segment, and the segments were prioritized so that the ITS network could be implemented in phases.
