This includes the US 19 Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) and Sixteen Closed Loop Signal Systems.

Our SCATS system is the only system of its type in the State of Florida and the fifth largest of 15 SCATS in the United States and. Expansions of the system the other roadways are planned for the future. All school flashers in the county are computer controlled though a radio pager system. The division is also responsible for roadway lighting on some arterial roadways. Construction of new traffic signals is accomplished in conjunction with the Transportation Capital Improvement Plan.

Maintenance
A technician is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to respond to all emergencies. All technicians are certified by the International Municipal Signal Association at various technical levels of Traffic Signals and Roadway Lighting. All maintenance and construction is performed to strict federal and state standards by highly trained technicians.

Data Collection
The division conducts traffic counts, speed studies, crash analysis, and other data collection to support various programs along with the Engineering Services Department and Growth Management. Work orders for new signs and markings or revisions are prepared in response to citizen requests. Annual reports are posted on the Divisions Web page for Traffic Crashes and Counts. This information is used to identify hazardous locations and make recommendations for improvements.

The division also inspects all traffic control devices installed in conjunction with subdivision and roadway construction. In conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Road Safety and Pedestrian Safety Audits are conducted at high crash locations. With design and some equipment provided by the Florida Department of Transportation safety improvements are made at locations identified in the audits to reduce crashes and enhance roadway safety.
