Engineering and Planning

The Traffic, Parking & Transportation Department provides many engineering and planning services to the people of Cambridge and to other Departments. 


Engineering staff are committed to continually making improvements to the transportation infrastructure in order to allow safe movement of all modes and to reduce the number and severity of crashes while creating a more comfortable and efficient environment for all travelers.

Staff plan, design, operate and maintain the City's traffic signals, signs, pavement markings, parking lots, meters and parking garages. 

Engineering services include traffic studies, traffic counts, speed studies and safety evaluations.
