Traffic Signals

The City of Hoover currently maintains a total of 107 signalized intersections with 3 more signals anticipated in 2023 or mid 2024. Of those 107 signals, approximately 60% are part of a coordinated system. In a coordinated system, it's typically the main street through movements that are coordinated (have a fixed green time). Some of the reasons for coordinating traffic signals are:

  • Increase vehicular traffic flow
  • Reduce peak hour delay
  • Manage progression speed 
  • Reduce number of vehicle stops

When reporting problems with traffic signals, please provide as much information about the intersection as possible, such as:

  • Intersecting street names
  • Travel direction
  • Day of week and time of day 
  • Issue observed
