Traffic Engineering

The Monterey County Traffic Engineering Division is responsible for the safe and efficient movement of traffic on County Maintained Roads. Responsibilities include the maintenance of traffic signals, the installation of new traffic control devices, and the review of the circulation effects of proposed development.

The Traffic Engineering Division responds to citizen requests for the installation of various traffic control devices and addresses issues that users experience with the County roadway system.


Speed Limits

The majority of speed limits are based on an Engineering and Traffic Survey (E&TS). In order for these speed limits to be enforceable by radar the E&TS need to support the posted speed limit.

The E&TS for various roads are linked below. To acquire a copy of an E&TS that is not online please contact the Traffic Engineering office at (831) 755-4800.

E&TS - Carmel Valley Road (700 feet West of Phelps Way to 300 feet West of Pilot Road (Coming Soon)
