Plan Review and Permitting

Transportation Planning

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.
