Traffic Engineering and Operations Division

Parking Permit Information
Traffic Flow Map
Method Used to Obtain Material
The traffic count data for the flow map is obtained by the use of mechanical traffic counters placed on the street, within the same area as the count station, for a 24-hour period during a typical weekday.
Limitations of Data
The information contained in this map represents a weekday average daily traffic volume. Weekends and holiday counts are not included in the averages. Through the averaging process, the seasonal fluctuation of traffic volume is not apparent, but recognition of this condition should be made for proper perspective.
Residential Neighborhood Traffic Management
The City of Orange is committed to the safety and livability of its residential neighborhoods. The Residential Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (RNTMP) was developed as a tool box of traffic calming techniques to be used in residential communities to mitigate problems associated with excessive speed and , or "cut through" traffic. The Orange City Council adopted RNTMP by resolution in July of 2001.
The Traffic Engineering Division maintains the traffic signals and streetlights in the City of Orange.
The Traffic Engineering Division conducts a street light check every other week to locate and repair any malfunctioning street lights. If you notice a street light that is not working properly, please fill out the Street Light Repair Request Form to report problems. After you have completed the form, you can print and submit your form electronically.
Traffic Management Center (TMC)
Orange’s Traffic Management Center is the hub behind the City’s Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). This high-tech system of cameras and software allows the staff to monitor traffic and reduce traffic congestion. The City’s ITS system includes a network of fiber optics and wireless links that connect traffic signals, and cameras back to the Traffic Management Center. The system allows operators to monitor traffic signals, giving them a real-time view of traffic conditions, and make adjustments as needed. As the city continues to grow the future plans are to extend its fiber optic network to more traffic signals and cameras.
