Traffic Signal Maintenance

About Traffic Signals

The purpose of a traffic signal is to assign right-of-way to opposing movements of traffic at an intersection. At times, traffic signal indicator lights (red, yellow, and green) will burn out and need replacement. Additionally, safety lights and illuminated street name signs on traffic signals will burn out and need replacement. 

Report a TRAFFIC SIGNAL ISSUE

To report any of these lights out during weekday work hours, please contact the Public Works Department at 714-961-7170 or submit a service request through the online Citizen Request Tracker.


For evening/ weekend emergencies please contact the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Dispatch at 714-647-7000.
