Processes and Policies of the Traffic Engineering Committee

Traffic safety requests/concerns must be received at least one week prior to the next public meeting in order to be placed on the agenda.  Request received after that will be added to the agenda for the next scheduled meeting. Meetings are typically held on the first Tuesday of each month.

Step 1 - Resident or association completes the Traffic Control Investigation/Improvement form. The form should be mailed to the attention of City of Moline Traffic Engineering Committee at 3635 4th Avenue, Moline, IL 61265 or email to related requests that affect other property owners will require a consent form (found on page 2 of the Traffic Control Investigation/Improvement form).

Step 2 - After receipt of the request, City staff will investigate the issue via a variety of steps which may include but are not limited to: speed studies, vehicular counts, and traffic accident history.

Step 3 - Staff places submitted requests on the agenda for the next Traffic Engineering Committee meeting. Residents are welcome to attend the meeting to explain their concerns in person, however, attendance it is not required for your item to be reviewed. City staff will notify all residents of the Traffic Engineering Committee’s findings following the meeting.

Step 4
 - Staff reviews results of studies at the Traffic Engineering Committee meeting and provides a recommendation which can range from denying the request, education, increased law enforcement, to installation of signage, traffic calming devices, and/or other engineering solutions.

Step 5
 – Depending on the Traffic Engineering Committee’s recommendation, the request may require City Council action at the Committee-of-the-Whole and City Council meeting.

* The review process and subsequent installation of traffic control devices can be a long-term process that takes several months to complete.  The more extensive and expensive the request, the longer the review process may take. Such requests require more research and installation of actual traffic control measures may require sourcing of materials that can, at times, be weather dependent and may require coordination with other entities such as the Moline School District, Rock Island County, and the Illinois Department of Transportation.

* Traffic Engineering Committee recommendations to the City Council will be in accordance with the requirements of Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and the Illinois Department of Transportation.

* If after the review process a request does not warrant installation of traffic control devices or other engineering solutions, the request will revert to education and enforcement options.
