The fundamental reason this classification exists is to perform professional engineering work in the conduct and maintenance of traffic engineering surveys and projects. Primary work responsibilities may include: designing plans of and inspecting construction of subdivisions and commercial developments, roadways, and plats; inspecting plans and construction for traffic operations compliance; coordinating and inspecting traffic operations projects; performing traffic engineering studies; designing construction plans for transportation improvement and safety projects; conducting field observation surveys of traffic conditions; and conducting field observations of traffic control devices. The Traffic Engineer I is distinguished from the Traffic Engineer II in that the level and scope of responsibility exercised by the Traffic Engineer I is less advanced than that of the Traffic Engineer II. The Traffic Engineer I performs work independently and may advise and direct lower-level technical employees. Traffic Engineer I incumbents report to the Traffic Engineer II.
