Traffic Control

The City of Boerne provides an opportunity for citizens to request an addition or change to local traffic control devices.  These devices are primarily related to stop controls, parking and speed zones.  Anyone requesting an addition/change to local traffic control devices must submit a traffic control request form (link below) to the Development Services Department located at City Hall. 

The City of Boerne, as a practice, does NOT install speed bumps on city streets.

The City of Boerne does NOT install stop signs to control speed.

Multiway stop intersections will be considered:

  • If there is a need to control vehicle / pedestrian conflicts near locations that generate high pedestrian volumes
  • In areas where volume on two streets is equal and placement of multiway stop control would improve the operational traffic characteristics of the intersection.

Where there is no speed limit posted on a street, the Prima Facie speed limit as stated in the Texas Transportation Code Section 545.352 applies.

Speeding is an enforcement issue. Studies show that the most effective tool to curtail speed violators is active law enforcement. Should you observe habitual speed violators in your neighborhood, it is recommended you contact the police department. Information relating to vehicle description, time of day, direction of travel, and license plate number is very useful for the police in prioritizing limited manpower and resources.
