The Division of Traffic Signal Engineering & Operations is responsible for the construction and maintenance of traffic signals and flasher devices located on county highways and the City of Rochester streets; oversees the Computerized Signal System that continuously monitors traffic signals, and traffic flow; and conducts traffic engineering studies and analyses. This division is also responsible for operating and maintaining light fixtures along the Rochester area expressway system, including fixtures outside the city and within the city and some light fixtures on state and county arterial roads.



Regional Traffic Operations Center (RTOC)

Monroe County's Regional Traffic Operations Center (RTOC) opened in 2002.  RTOC is a state-of-the-art traffic management center that hosts a wide variety of traffic emergency responders under one roof. It serves as the primary traffic management center for the Greater Rochester area. Included within the facility are the Monroe County DOT (MCDOT) traffic signal system and dispatchers, New York State DOT (NYSDOT) dispatchers, traffic signal maintenance shops for MCDOT and NYSDOT, MCDOT's expressway lighting shop, New York State Police Troop E Zone 1 headquarters, and Monroe County Airport operations. These players each contribute a different viewpoint of traffic which, when put togehter, form complete detection and response capabilities for both the daily routine of traffic as well as traffic incident management.

  • The Monroe County Department of Transportation manages the City and County arterial street network, including operation and maintenance of approximately 630 traffic signals and 175 other devices such as warning flashers and Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs).  There are approximately 500 traffic signals and 120 traffic cameras that can be remotely controlled and monitored from RTOC. Maintenance of the expressway lighting system and dispatch of County highway and bridge crews are also based at RTOC;
  • The New York State Department of Transportation manages the area expressway and primary arterial system, including pavement temperature detection, traffic signals, traffic cameras, dynamic message signs, and the Highway Emergency Local Patrol (HELP) truck program;
  • The New York State Police are the patrolling agency for the area expresway system. Their presence includes both incident detection and management capabilities;
  • The Monroe County Airport Authority manages the runways, taxiways, and lights for the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport (GRIA). This includes weather and pavement temperature detection.

The Traffic Signal Engineering Section is responsible for modeling, monitoring, and controlling approximately 500 traffic signals on the County's fiber optic computerized traffic signal system located mostly on major City streets, County roads, and State highways in the Towns of Brighton, Gates, Greece, Henrietta, Irondequoit, Parma, Penfield, Perinton, Pittsford, and Webster. The signal system monitors traffic flow and utilizes signal-timing patterns of various lengths based on traffic conditions and time-of-day. Signal phasing and timing is determined by software modeling, and maintenance concerns are received and dispatched for the remaining 300 signals and devices not on the signal system.

The Traffic Signal Maintenance & Operations Section is responsible for the construction, maintenance, and operation of approximately 630 traffic signals, 175 other flasher devices, and 120 traffic cameras located on State highways, County roads, and City streets to ensure a safe road network throughout the County. Work includes the maintenance responsibility for all components of the computerized signal system, the traffic monitoring camera system, and electrical maintenance support for the Colonel Patrick O'Rorke Memorial Bridge and the Irondequoit Bay Outlet Bridge (IBOB).

Traffic Signals Maintained by MCDOT

The Department of Transportation maintains many traffic signals in Rochester, Brighton, Irondequoit, Henrietta, Greece, and other municipalities in Monroe County. See below for lists of traffic signal locations which are maintained by Monroe County DOT.

If you experience any problems with these traffic signals, please call our dispatch center at 585 753-7750. This phone number is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can also use this phone number to report traffic signals that are not on this list, and we will forward the information to the proper agency maintaining the traffic signal.

Remember: NYS Motor Vehicle law requires that drivers treat a traffic signal that is totally dark (no red, yellow, or green indications) as a multi-way stop by stopping at the intersection and yielding to other stopped traffic before going through the intersection.

Traffic Studies Section

The Traffic Studies Section reviews, collects, and updates traffic information to ensure that appropriate traffic control devices are in place on City streets and County roads. Work includes conducting traffic engineering studies and analyses, collecting and maintaining traffic counts, and proactively monitoring accident rates on City streets and County roads to identify and study Priority Investigation Locations (PILs) as part of the High Accident Location Program (HALP).  

If you have traffic safety concerns and would like to request a traffic study, please call or email the Monroe County Department of Transportation.

Highway Lighting Section

The Monroe County Department of Transportation is responsible for operating and maintaining 4,500 light fixtures along the Rochester area expressway system, including 2,800 fixtures outside the City and 1,700 within the City. Both the expressway mainline and the access ramps are included in this lighting system. Most of this lighting is provided on standard light poles, either in the median of the expressway or along its edges. There are also some locations that use high masts, which are very tall light poles used to illuminate a larger area with a single pole.

The county is undergoing a series of projects to replace the high pressure sodium light fixtures with LED fixtures. This will result in more visually pleasant lighting, along with a 50% savings in energy costs. Fixtures that are located in areas where drivers could potentially collide with them use a breakaway safety base. Upon impact, the base is designed to break off, allowing the pole to fall rather than remain rigid. This protects the driver and occupants of the vehicle from injury by dissipating the energy of the collision. In a typical collision, the colliding vehicle passes through before the pole falls, the fallen pole lands out of harm’s way, and the pole can be reset and used again.

We also fund the cost of operating and maintaining 750 lights along some state arterial highways and 250 lights along some county highways. However, there is no direct correlation between the road jurisdiction and the lighting along the road. Regardless of the road jurisdiction, most street lighting is provided by the Towns and the City of Rochester. Within the Towns, utility companies (primarily RG&E) own most of the infrastructure and perform the actual operation and maintenance activities, including those funded by the County.

To report maintenance problems along the expressway system, call Monroe County at (585) 753-7670. For all other roads, call your local utility company.

City of Rochester Programs

The Monroe County Department of Transportation acts on behalf of the City of Rochester as the City's Traffic Engineer.  MCDOT reviews and advises the City on complaints, requests, traffic studies, and on City street projects.  The County provides funding for the construction of select City street reconstruction projects in accordance with New York State Highway Law, Section 131-K.
