Traffic Flow

Our traffic engineers monitor traffic flow in intersections and other busy areas to ensure you can get where you need to go as quickly as possible.

Notice a traffic signal timing issue? Report it to our Lenexa 311 Service Request system.


Intersection Cameras

We have several cameras strategically placed throughout the city that help us closely monitor traffic flows, and if there is a problem, we may be able to fix it remotely.


Street Maintenance

Our staff maintains the streets and trails through sidewalk repairs, street sweeping, pothole patching, curb repair and our Pavement Management Program.

Notice a pothole, broken curb or sidewalk in need of repair? Report it to our Lenexa 311 Service Request system.


Other Innovations and Technology

We strive to provide safe and efficient traffic operations to our residents, and we use many different forms of technology and innovation to accomplish that goal. This includes:

  • School zone flashers - We can turn our school flashers on or off remotely, which is a benefit for both students and drivers. For example, if school is let out early, we can turn on the flashers to alert vehicles to slow down for students in that area by remotely programming an alternate timing plan.

  • LED traffic signal lights - Most of our traffic signal lights have been replaced with light-emitting diode (LED) lights, which use significantly less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. LED lights are also easier to see, especially in direct sunlight. We only have to replace the LED lights approximately every ten years, which saves time and money.

  • Illuminated and advance street name signs - We have installed illuminated and advance street name signs along major corridors which help unfamiliar drivers with way finding as they navigate throughout the city.

  • LED street lights - Recent technology advances have made LED’s street lighting more effective, efficient and long lasting such that replacing fixtures makes good economic sense. We will be replacing nearly all of the street lights with LEDs in 2017. This will not only save money on energy and maintenance costs, but also provide better lighting for the roadways in Lenexa.

  • Traffic signal operations - We are part of Operation Green Light, which is an organization that times and coordinates traffic signals throughout the metropolitan area without regard to jurisdictional boundaries. We have 29 signals coordinated through the system, and we use their traffic signal management system to communicate with the other 40 signals in Lenexa. With the traffic signal management system, operations can be remotely monitored, timed and controlled to provide more efficient traffic signal operation throughout the city.
