Under general supervision, the Senior Transportation Engineer performs responsible, professional engineering work within the Traffic Engineering section of the Transportation Department. This class performs related work as required.
Employees in this class perform the full range of professional engineering assignments within the Transportation Department.

In addition, a Senior Transportation Engineer may direct and review the work performed by lower level professional, paraprofessional, and technical staff. Assignments are broad in scope and require the use of independent, professional judgment and initiative in making technical decisions of considerable difficulty.
A Senior Transportation Engineer is responsible for conducting all types of traffic engineering studies, traffic signal timing and traffic management, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) design, ITS configuration and maintenance, creating policies and design standards, reviewing roadway design plans, reviewing commercial development and subdivision plans, preparing or checking signing and striping plans for the City street system, and acting as the City's technical expert in these areas. Work is reviewed by the City Traffic Engineer, Supervising Engineer, or ITS Engineer through conferences, inspections, and results achieved. This class is distinguished from the Transportation Engineer class by the required registration as a Civil Engineer, and by performing more difficult and varied professional engineering work assignments with minimal direct supervision.
