Traffic signals, signs and markings are intricate traffic control devices that regulate, warn and guide traffic on streets and highways in Midland. To be consistent with other Cities in Michigan, all traffic control operations should follow accepted standards outlined in the Michigan Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MMUTCD), as amended.
The City of Midland strives to provide a safe roadway environment. This is accomplished in part through an aggressive preventative maintenance program and timely emergency response - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - for traffic signal repairs or regulatory signs such as stop signs on Midland roadways.
The primary responsibility of the signs and signal shop is to upgrade and maintain all aspects of signals, signs and pavement marking operations.
A traffic control order is written approval from the Midland City Council to establish regulatory control of vehicular traffic within the Midland City limits.
