Considerable planning and daily maintenance keeps Chandler on the move. It’s no easy task, but one that we take seriously. Through the dedicated efforts of the Transportation Division, Chandler's transportation system continues to be a well-maintained and valuable contributor to Chandler's quality of life.
Transportation Master Plan Update 2019
City planners are in the process of updating Chandler's Transportation Master Plan to address the current and future transportation needs of our community. The plan will identify transportation issues and update goals, objectives and policy recommendations that will guide decisions the City makes about prioritizing, funding and implementing transportation system improvements. The City has conducted an online survey and held community meetings to solicit ideas, opinions and priorities concerning improvements to Chandler’s transportation system, including the roadway system, transit system, bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
A draft of the Transportation Master Plan will be presented to the public later this year. Several opportunities to provide feedback will be given to the public, including additional meetings in the community. Details on those meetings will be shared on this page, through the City's social media accounts and through local print media.

Traffic Management Center
With its wall of video screens displaying images of intersections, Chandler's Traffic Management Center (TMC) enables the City to monitor situations at major intersections to better control the flow of traffic. Signal system analysts working in the center can modify signal timing to address construction issues, impacts caused by roadway maintenance projects, accidents and other incidents. The TMC receives video feeds from more than 800 cameras located at 200-plus intersections.
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.

Dynamic Message Signs
Three Dynamic Message Signs (DMS) 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.
Chandler is working with the Arizona Department of Transportation to provide traffic and road condition information for major freeways on its 511 phone system and website. This link provides information on road closures, construction, weather conditions and also displays images from freeway cameras.
