League City Set to Take Over Traffic Signal Maintenance and Operation on June 1, 2011

Beginning June 1 the Texas Department of Transportation will be transferring the maintenance and operation of traffic signals, located on state highways within the city, to the City of League City. 

The City will assume the maintenance and operation responsibility for approximately 60 traffic signals, 8 advanced warning flashing lights and 29 school zone flashing lights from the Texas Department of Transportation.

The responsibility of traffic sign operation and maintenance is the duty of incorporated cities with a population of 50,000 or more, according to the Texas Administration Code.  The City of League City had been anticipating the city’s official population to exceed 50,000, and it was confirmed when 2010 Census data listed League City’s population as 83,560.

City staff has set up a traffic signal hotline for problems with signals.  Citizens can report problems by calling the hotline at 281-554-1199 or by emailing  The phone number for the hotline will be displayed on the controller cabinets next to traffic signals. “We urge residents to report any problems or malfunctions.  The hotline is just one part of a system we’ve established to respond to traffic signal malfunctions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” said Linc Wright, League City’s Traffic Engineer.  A link to this information is available on
