Member of Rocklin's Traffic Division works on a street sign from a crane bucket.

Traffic Division: Public Service for Public Safety

With 72 traffic signals, 3,000 City-owned-and-managed streetlights, and 15,000 signs in City limits, the Rocklin Traffic Division has plenty to keep the department of four busy.

Each traffic signal undergoes quarterly and annual checks to verify that the conflict manager, detectors, controllers, and lights are working properly, and to clean out the cabinets of any debris. Additionally, about 10 intersections of traffic signal lights, or about 50 bulbs, are replaced every year to reduce the chance of burned-out lights causing confusion for drivers.
