Traffic Signal & Streetlighting Map 

Streetlighting

How do you report a streetlight outage?   Consumers Energy Company owns most of the streetlights in Wyoming. The City owns only a few designated circuits. A detailed streetlighting map may be viewed here. To report a streetlight issue to Consumers Energy, you may do so from their website. If you have a City-owned streetlight issue or do not know who to report to, contact the Traffic department.

How do you request a new streetlight be installed in your neighborhood?  Requests for new streetlights or changes should be made to the Traffic department. We will work with Consumers Energy Company to determine the need of an additional light or decide if there is another way to resolve the problem.

Street Signs

To report missing or damaged signs or to request new signage, contact the Traffic department. The City maintains all signs that are located adjacent to the roadway.

Where can you put your garage sale sign?  Personal signs go behind the sidewalk. You should not place any signs in the public right of way (between the sidewalk and the street). This includes real estate, garage sale, political, or any other personal sign. Signs that violate this regulation are removed and taken to the Public Works Facility where they are held for five days. If you would like to reclaim your sign within this time period, there is a retrieval fee of $5.00 per sign.

Traffic Counts

Traffic volume counts are obtained by City staff and published by the Grand Valley Metropolitan Council.  This data may be viewed on their website.

Truck Routes

Certain streets have been designated as truck routes and can be viewed on the truck route map.

Traffic Calming

We may be able to help solve traffic problems on your street:

  • Speeding
  • Traffic volume
  • Cut-through traffic
  • Accidents
  • Pedestrian safety
  • Parking

We work together with a traffic consultant to solve those problems by using a variety of tools:

  • Signs
  • Pavement markings
  • Selective police enforcement
  • Mobile radar unit
  • Traffic circles
  • Street narrowing 
    Wyoming does not use speed bumps
