The Thornton Traffic division strives to ensure maximum transportation options and efficiency for the traveling public by doing the following:
The traffic signal lights that control the flow of vehicles on Thornton's major street corridors are typically retimed every 3-4 years, or sooner if the need arises. Thornton partners with the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) to coordinate the timing of traffic signals. The purpose of this work is to enable vehicles to move along as smoothly as possible and reduce travel times, fuel consumption, and environmental contamination in the form of exhaust.
