Traffic

The Engineering Division is responsible for managing all traffic-related infrastructure within the City of Fairborn.  Traffic infrastructure includes but is not limited to; traffic signals, roadway signs, street name signs, pavement markings, and school flashers.  Managing infrastructure includes project management, design, inspection, inventory, and tracking of maintenance activities.  The Engineering Division works closely with the Street Division to meet and exceed industry standards for all traffic infrastructure within the city.

The Engineering Division is also responsible for gathering and processing traffic count data.  Traffic counts are typically collected with road tubes and provide a 24 hour traffic volume or ADT (average daily traffic).  All City of Fairborn primary roadways are counted at least once every three years.  This information provides volume trends and is valuable for making roadway design decisions.  Traffic counts are often requested by potential developers of retail properties.

TRAFFIC UPDATES

SCHOOL FLASHER REPLACEMENTS:  The school flasher units adjacent to Fairborn Intermediate and Fairborn Primary Schools were recently upgraded.  The old flashers were close to 50 years old, powered by overhead power lines, and in serious disrepair.  The new flashers are solar powered with larger flashing beacons for better visibility.  The new flasher units have a third beacon on the back side to inform drivers already in the school zone that the flashers are active.
