We propose a framework for generating a signal control policy for a traffic network of signalized intersections to accomplish control objectives expressible using linear temporal logic. By applying techniques from model checking and formal methods, we obtain a correct-by-construction controller that is guaranteed to satisfy complex specifications. To apply these tools, we identify and exploit structural properties particular to traffic networks that allow for efficient computation of a finite-state abstraction. In particular, traffic networks exhibit a componentwise monotonicity property which enables reaching set computations that scale linearly with the dimension of the continuous state space.
