Important Update About Traffic Studies
On March 30, 2020, Governor Doug Ducey issued a statewide "stay-at-home" order to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Due to this order and the effects of social distancing efforts prior to this order, traffic volumes on Peoria's streets have been drastically reduced. In an effort to prevent these unusual circumstances from delaying traffic studies, the Traffic Engineering Division is employing modified requirements for submitting a Traffic Impact Study (TIS) or Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA).
During this time, certain traffic study requirements may be waived, up to and including a full Traffic Impact Analysis. The City Traffic Engineer may waive these requirements based on a case-by-case basis, applying the City's standard access management criteria and engineering judgement. Traffic engineers preparing traffic studies shall obtain approval of waived requirements prior to any formal traffic study submittal.
During this time, traditional traffic counts typically will not be accepted. The City Traffic Engineer must approve any count methodology prior to submitting a TIA or TIS. Possible methodologies include, but are not limited to:
- Use of Annual City Traffic Counts, available at our Traffic Counts webpage
- Use of ITE Trip Generation modelling for all land uses within a larger development when a new developed is added to an existing site.
- Applying a seasonal factor to previous traffic counts
This moratorium period is from April 6, 2020 and will be applied perpetually until terminated by the City Traffic Engineer. This applies to all traffic studies for development projects within the City of Peoria city limits and its Municipal Planning Area.

Transportation Planning supports the policies and priorities for the City’s master planning and Capital Improvements Program projects. The primary goals are to reduce single-occupancy, self-driven vehicles, improve bicycle and pedestrian safety, increase transit ridership, and create opportunities through private development to support and enhance the existing and planned on-street and off-street network.
The City is a local partner with the jurisdictions of Phoenix, Glendale, and Surprise and regional partner with MCDOT, ADOT, and the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) to ensure contiguous roadway connections, proper street widths and classifications, and solutions for pedestrian, bicyclist, and transit users. Peoria is a leader in incorporating new technologies and planning for future trends and technologies.

Intelligent Transportation System
Peoria’s Traffic Management Center (TMC) is the “brain” behind the City’s Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). This is a high-tech system of pan-tilt-zoom cameras, video detection systems, traffic signal controllers, and central monitoring system all linked together by an extensive fiber communication network. The system includes roughly 60 miles of fiber optic cable and wireless radios that connect approximately 123 traffic signals and 70 pan-tilt-zoom cameras. Coverage spans from the north portion of the Loop 303 to Northern Avenue and from the El Mirage Road alignment to 71st Avenue. Using the pan-tilt-zoom cameras, TMC staff can then monitor and make real-time changes to the traffic signals in order to reduce traffic congestion.
To report traffic signal outages or requests for service, please call the Streets Division at 623-773-7432 or report a traffic signal issue online.
For traffic signals on Grand Avenue and Loop 101, please call ADOT at 602-712-7355 or submit the issue online to ADOT.
For traffic signals located at:
- Peoria Avenue & 99th Avenue – All traffic signals west of this intersection

Resident Traffic Program
The City of Peoria Traffic Engineering Division recognizes the ongoing response from the community regarding traffic in residential neighborhoods and on Peoria streets. Traffic Engineering staff can assist by improving conditions through optional Speed Humps or Cushions, Parking Restrictions Signs, and Deaf/Blind Child Warning Signs, which can all be requested by residents. (formerly known as the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program).
