The Transportation Department is responsible for the daily traffic operations including:

  • Collecting and maintaining traffic data (e.g. traffic counts)
  • Operating traffic signals
  • Providing traffic design and traffic engineering services

Looking to the future, we examine better ways to connect people to their destinations. In keeping with the city’s multi-modal transportation strategy, we evaluate, plan and seek funding to improve our roads, sidewalks and bicycle facilities.

Traffic Calming

The City often receives requests from citizens to install speed bumps or similar roadway features designed to reduce the speed of vehicles in their neighborhood. Richland's traffic engineering and police patrol divisions work together to respond to requests and have developed criteria to determine where such measures are warranted. Please se Richland's Resolution No. 28-11 for details.

Street Maintenance

The Streets Maintenance Division is responsible for approximately 275 miles of streets. The division uses best management practices to maintain those streets, sidewalks and trail facilities, supporting safe and efficient mobility for all our community's travelers.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality transportation facilities and modal choices to Richland residents.
