Safe and efficient road systems require partnerships, both internally between WCRC’s departments and externally between WCRC, motorists, pedestrians, neighborhoods, non-profits and local units of governments.

WCRC maintains more than 250 traffic signals across the county. If you see a dark or damaged traffic signal, contact (734) 761-1500 immediately.
