The City of Arvada operates and maintains over 90 traffic signals and 128 school zone flashers placed throughout the City. Traffic signals located along state highways in the City, including Wadsworth Boulevard, Sheridan Boulevard, and State Highway 72, are operated and maintained by the Colorado Department of Transportation.
New traffic signals are installed in the City based upon a set of criteria in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. This criteria has been established nationally and have been adopted by the City. The criteria include certain minimum vehicular and or pedestrian volumes and traffic crash experience.
The City reviews intersections that might warrant the installation of a traffic signal every year. The intersections that meet the criteria that would allow the installation of a signal are then prioritized for future construction. The City usually budgets for one new traffic signal per year.
