The Traffic Signal Section for the County of Henrico is responsible for more than 140 traffic signals. This includes all maintenance, installation, contractor inspection, and design for these signals. The Division also responds to emergency signal malfunction calls on a 24 hour (call 501-5000 after 4:30) basis and could range from simply changing a bulb to a signal pole that has been knocked down in an accident.

The County Signals that are maintained are only the ones located at County Intersections and County roadways. The State of Virginia maintains its signals on State roads which run through Henrico County.

This section was created in 1973 and is currently under the direction of the Assistant Traffic Engineer, Matthew Mawyer. For more information or complaints concerning County traffic signals you may contact Mr. Mawyer by email.

For signal maintenance concerning:

  • Signal light bulbs out
  • Short timings of signals
  • Signal detectors that do not pick up vehicles
