Traffic signals are electronically operated traffic control devices which alternately direct traffic to stop and go. Traffic signals are designed to provide an orderly flow of traffic.  They also allow an opportunity for pedestrians or vehicles to cross an intersection and to lessen the number of conflicts between vehicles entering intersections from different directions.

Middletown Township owns and maintains the traffic signals and school zone flashers throughout the Township, even the ones located on state roads.  PennDOT is the agency responsible for approving or modifying these traffic control devices throughout Pennsylvania.  Once a traffic signal or school zone flasher has been approved and installed, the municipality in which the signal is located owns and is responsible for maintenance of that signal.

The Department of Public Works also maintains and replaces traffic signs; including stop signs, street name signs and speed limit signs.
