Traffic Signal Re-timing and Traffic Management Center Upgrade  

Project Type:
This project involves improving the traffic signal timing at signalized intersections throughout Minneapolis and improving the City's Traffic Management Center.  The goal is to cut commuter delays and reduce overall fuel consumption.

The project has the following components:

When work is completed, the new traffic signal timing plans will be programmed into the traffic signal controller at each signalized intersection and integrated into the new central traffic signal computer system.  Staff will then evaluate the new timing plans and make adjustments as necessary.  

The project will retime nearly all of the traffic signals within the city limits.  The exceptions will be traffic signals along Hiawatha Ave, which were improved as part of t a project to better time traffic signals affected by the light-rail transit line.  (The Hiawatha Traffic Signal Timing Project was completed in December 2012).

Approximately 80 percent of the funding for the Traffic Signal Timing Project comes from a federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality grant.  The remainder of the funding comes from various other sources.

Project Limits:
This project has been divided into three phases:
Phase 1: 204 traffic signals located in and around the downtown area.
Phase 2: 351 traffic signals located in south Minneapolis
Phase 3: 232 traffic signals located in the north, northeast, and southeast areas of the city

Project Schedule:
Phase 1: March 2011 to summer of 2013 (Complete)
Phase 2: June of 2011 to end of 2013 (Complete)
Phase 3: March of 2014 to summer of 2014 (Complete)
