The challenge of Chandler's rapid growth has been met with new roads, freeways, and traffic management solutions. In addition, our municipal airport is one of the busiest in the State and features a growing airpark development that will pay economic dividends for many years to come.
 

    The City-owned Chandler Municipal Airport is perfectly positioned to service the needs of general aviation and corporate aviation users in the southeast Valley.
     
  Three major freeways serve the needs of our community: Santan Freeway (202) goes from I-10 on the west side to Gilbert Road; Price Freeway (101) from the 202 interchange north into Scottsdale; and Interstate 10 sits at the western edge of the City.

Traffic Management
     
  Three DMS signs provide travel time information for commuters as they approach the freeway. They are located on westbound Chandler Blvd east of I-10 and on northbound Arizona Ave and Price Rd south of Loop 202. The signs were purchased with money received from a federal Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality grant that supports technologies and infrastructure improvements designed to reduce traffic congestion, which in turn improves air quality. Please take our short survey to help us better manage these signs and provide the information most important to you.
     
  In 2006, the City of Chandler was the first city in Arizona to implement a queue jumper lane at a signalized intersection.
     
Pedestrian Pushbuttons   The pedestrian detection system is an important part of the City's signal system. Pedestrians must push the button to indicate their presence, which, in turn, alerts the signal controller to extend the traffic signal cycle to accommodate the pedestrian.
     

 Speed Enforcement Program

  Chandler has joined other Valley communities in using photo enforcement to reduce the rate of red light running offenses and accidents as well as speeding on green.
     
  Controlling traffic volumes or traffic speeds along residential streets is critical to maintaining a safe neighborhood and community. Neighborhood involvement is the key. Information on intersection traffic volumes and road segment traffic volumes.
     
  You can report traffic signal problems and learn more about the City's improvements with signal timing.
