In 2005, the City of Brentwood opened its new Traffic Operations Center (TOC) at the Brentwood Service Center, 1750 General George Patton Drive. The TOC was part of a $2 million federally funded project that created a fiber optic network to interconnect 40 traffic signals within the City.
The project also included installation of 14 cameras to visually monitor traffic flow at major intersections. The video from the cameras can be viewed every weekday on the City’s Channel 19 public access channel during the morning and evening rush hour time period. The video is also always available for viewing on the City’s website by clicking here.
Since widening of roads is very expensive and often physically impossible without major impacts to adjoining property owners, the TOC is intended to improve traffic flow through the more efficient timing and operation of traffic signals. From the TOC, the City’s Traffic Operations Coordinator can monitor traffic signal operations at all intersections and remotely adjust signal timings as needed to address major traffic problems.
If you notice a problem or have a comment or concern regarding the operation of traffic signals within Brentwood, please complete the online traffic signal citizen comment form.
