New Search  
Signals page helps you to further refine your search by listing the locations that match your search criteria. If your search returns only one match, This stage is omitted and you will go directly to the Plans page. It is important to note that some of the singals listed on this page may no longer exist or they may be waiting to be constructed.

Navigation The areas on top and bottom of this page contain general information about the search. The display of navigation information is dynamic and change with the search results. If there are too many signals to fit on one page, you will see the number of the pages that hold all the signals as well as the current page number. In this case you can use specific page number or navigation links to go to the desired page. If there are more than 10 pages. Every 10 page will be grouped in one set. You will be able to move between the sets by using NEXT and LAST. You will see the options for PREVIOUS and FIRST once you move out of the first set.
Help - The Help link will bring you to this page. In each of the other pages, HELP will bring you to the relevant area of the Help page.
New Search - This will take you back to the Search Box. If you just came from there, and wish to retain your entries, you may use the back button on your browser instead.
Last Update - For security reasons the files and data available to you are only a copy of the original. We update this system periodically and here you can see the last time it was updated.
MILE - This number indicates where the side road is located along the main road. Sometimes mile points change due to roadway construction. To find the latest mile point contact the SHA project manager for the location you are interested in. You can see the location of the signal on a map by clicking on this link. This will also give you the coordinates, satelite image and ground level photos of the signal if available.
PLAN The Plan icon is a link that takes you to the plan page where you can browse though all available plans for that location. When there are no plans available for a signal, Plan icon is dimmed. You can see the TS number, signal type and the county name for that signal by holding the mouse over the plan icon. TS Number (Traffic Signal Number) is a unique number assigned to each traffic signal by Traffic Engineering Design Division of Office of Traffic and Safety.
LOCATION This usually represents the location of an intersection, in which case the left side of "@" sign is the MAIN ROUTE and the right side of it is the INTERSECTING ROAD. The name you enter in search box for either main route or intersecting road could show either on the left or on the right side of @ sign. We designed the system in this manner so you don't have to worry about whether the road you are looking for is the main road or the side road.

A signal project may be entirely about a signal system that connects several locations for timing coordination or other purposes. To mange the plans for such cases we have created a record for each system with a unique TS number and a Unique System number. These items that are referred to as interconnect do not represent a single location. The following is an example of how they are presented:
Interconnect 126: MD 2 System Edgewater(MD 2 @ Southdown)
Locations: Virginia, Warehouse Creek Lane, 253/Mayo, Southdown, Pike Ridge, Mitchells Chance, 214

126 is the System number and crossing roads for the intersections contained in this system are listed under locations. The Systems Cabinet (SC) or cabinets that manage the coordination are located at specific intersections which typically have their own TS number. Name of these intersections are designated by (-SC-)
