Traffic signs Fort Worth road crews put up assist motorists and pedestrians to navigate safely the sometimes-confusing closures, construction zones and other extraordinary situations that interrupt the flow of daily travel. Clients who contact us for the design and manufacture of these signs include construction companies, municipalities and private road maintenance crews. You can also see some traffic signs, such as stop and yield markers, in larger parking lots where the mix of pedestrians and drivers can become dangerous.
Consider These Types of Traffic, Construction and Maintenance Signs
As always when buying signs, you have a wide variety of options.
Construction and maintenance crews usually rely on the diamond or rectangle-shaped signs to communicate with drivers. Most drivers already know the rectangular black on white sign that cautions them to “keep right” or “keep left” with an appropriate arrow. Traffic markers come in a variety of shapes such as squares, circles and octagons.
For traffic signage, the main categories covered with markers are to regulate, guide and warn traffic participants. For example, the octagonal stop sign regulates driving behavior and warns of possible hazards. Construction road signs serve to help drivers navigate only a particular stretch of road.
While most traffic signs are permanent in nature, those that are used during construction and maintenance are frequently portable, which means that they may not be mounted very high. Drivers have come to expect this setup and know to look for A-frames, shoulder-high stop signs and hand-held “stop” and “slow” markers. The latter are paddle markers that designated members of the road crews hold to direct traffic and allow workers to cross highways and roads safely.
Aluminum is a favorite material for road signage. It is durable, impervious to insect damage and does not warp during heavy rain or intense sunshine. Enhance the longevity of your signage by choosing engineer-grade aluminum.
Since visibility is a key element of safety, construction signs usually come with black print on fluorescent orange backgrounds or black print on red backgrounds. Traffic sign manufacture follows the local and federal standards for these products.
