Traffic Controls

About Traffic Controls
The Public Works Department maintains all of the street traffic controls in the city. These include traffic signals, traffic signs, and pavement markings.

Changing Traffic Controls
Changing a traffic control, or adding a new one, requires review of the Michigan Manual on Uniform Traffic Devices (MMUTCD).  Based on the requirements/best practices traffic controls may be changed. Discretionary changes will be reviewed by the City Infrastructure Committee with recommendations to the City Commission for changes.

If you notice an unsafe situation or have a suggestion regarding pedestrian or vehicular safety, please contact the Public Safety Department at 616-949-7010 or the Public Works Department at 616-940-4817.
