Connecticut’s Traffic Signal Circuit Rider Program

The Technology Transfer Center at UCONN is very pleased to introduce a new program to help local municipal agencies effectively manage their traffic signals.

Traffic signal management involves the planning, design, integration, maintenance, and proactive operation of a traffic signal system in order to achieve policy based objectives to improve the efficiency, safety and reliability of signalized intersections.

The Connecticut Traffic Signal Circuit Rider will provide no cost technical assistance and training to local agency representative’s responsible for municipal traffic signals.

Some of the services that will be available through the program:

• Assist Connecticut municipalities in the development of clear goals and objectives and a plan for management, operations and maintenance of their traffic signals.

• Write and disseminate technical briefs on traffic signal related topics to local municipal agencies.

• Work in the field to assist with traffic signal system retiming projects.

• Work with Connecticut regional planning agencies to promote opportunities for municipalities to consider federal-aid funding for traffic signal operations and to promote integration of traffic signal operations into metropolitan transportation plans and programs.

• Coordinate and facilitate training on traffic signal systems topics.

• Develop timing plan for municipalities that have traffic control signals at intersections that work in isolation.
