At the City of Hillsboro, we want everyone who travels within or through our community to reach their destination safely.

That’s why the Traffic Engineering section of our Public Works Department works to improve the safety, mobility, and efficiency of the City's transportation network. 

Traffic Engineering Responsibilities: 

  • Traffic studies and counts
  • Input on maintenance of signs, signals, pavement markings, and street lights
  • Respond to and investigate community safety concerns and traffic calming requests

The Traffic Engineering section oversees:

  • Traffic calming
  • Stop signs
  • Crosswalks
  • Parking regulations
  • Speed zones
  • Street lighting

Community members often contact us with safety concerns related to neighborhood traffic. Many of these concerns can be resolved through education and enforcement. Occasionally, we change roadway features to address safety hazards.
