We accomplish this by coordinating and directing transportation projects, managing traffic operations, and performing studies for the Town’s transportation system.  The Department also supports infrastructure asset management by managing the pavement management and traffic signal systems.  The Department is comprised of ten full-time employees and one part-time employee within two Divisions.
