Public Works maintains 78 traffic signals that utilize traffic engineering and signal synchronization to allow for minimal stopping which helps reduce travel times, idling at red lights, and greenhouse gas emissions.
Traffic Signal SynchronizationTraffic Signal Synchronization is an engineering technique to match traffic signal green lights at successive intersections to maximize passage of motorists along a corridor. Traffic signal synchronization allows for minimal stopping, which helps reduce travel times. Cars use less gas because stop and go travel and idling at red lights is reduced. Vehicle emissions are reduced because cars run more efficiently.
Major roadways that are designed to carry high traffic volumes over longer distances and are good candidates for a coordinated system. In Laguna Niguel, this includes Alicia Parkway, Crown Valley Parkway, Niguel Road, La Paz Road, Moulton Parkway/Golden Lantern and Pacific Park Drive.
