Street Sign

Novelty Street Signs should not be used for official purposes. These one-sided non-reflective signs are ideal for use in workplaces, residences, and other wall-mounted applications. Images and text are printed directly onto the sign, which is made of. 063" thick rust-free metal.

To get a new flashing sign for a school zone, the school principal should contact the chief traffic engineer to request an application. Note that the Streets Department only installs flashing signs for public schools, and power to the signs must come from the school facility.

The Traffic Control Division is responsible for maintaining all of the traffic/street signs and traffic control markings throughout the City. Technicians keep over 9,000 traffic signs and many hundreds of traffic pavement markings in good condition within the Coppell city limits.

To report a sign that is damaged call the Traffic Control Division at 972-462-5150 Monday through Friday from 7 am to 4:30 pm. For emergency situations after normal business hours and on weekends and holidays, call Coppell Police Dispatch at 972-304-3610. Damage to signs or markings can be reported electronically using the Request for Service form. These are the possible following damages:

Installation of regulatory signs such as "Stop" or "speed limit" in a new location requires an engineering study and/or ordinance. Requests for these types of signs should be emailed to the Engineering Department or call 972-304-3679.

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), maintains over 140,000 signs on over 88,000 posts and poles in Portland. New signs are designed to last 10 to 12 years before the sign's ability to provide minimum night-time reflectivity is no longer adequate. Graffiti, orientation to ultraviolet radiation, and airborne industrial pollutants dramatically reduce the sign's useful life. Changes in traffic regulations and changes in material standards can cause certain groups of signs to be replaced sooner.

In order to extend the life of street signs, the City is using more durable sign materials, improving sign cleaning techniques, using more time-saving materials and equipment, stepping up prosecution of graffiti offenders, conducting better inventory management, and making more careful, rational decisions for new sign installations.

For Street Name Sign replacement or repair only. If you have a green street name sign request located within non-municipal areas please let us know by filling out the form below.

The sign crew and sign shop fabricates most of the signs on Huntsville streets. Among the signs manufactured are regulatory, warning, guide, information, school zone signs, and street name markers. The crews also trim shrubbery and tree limbs which obstruct the view of traffic signs and signals. The sign crew is on call for emergency repairs which occur after-hours. To report a missing, damaged, or faded sign, call Traffic Engineering at 256-427-6850. For emergency repairs after hours or on weekends, call HPD Dispatch at 256-722-7100.

The signal crews perform preventative maintenance and new construction throughout the City of Huntsville. Regularly scheduled inspections ensure the safety of motorists, bicycles, and pedestrians as well as efficiency in travel. Traffic signal technicians are responsible for the installation, operation, and repair of the traffic signals and their associated electronic equipment. Traffic signal crews are also responsible for all overhead street name signage. To report traffic signal malfunctions, call Traffic Engineering at 256-427-6850. For emergency repairs after hours or on weekends, call HPD Dispatch at 256-427-6850.

Stop signs, yield signs, speed limit signs and other traffic warning signs in the city limits should be reported to Raeford Public Works at 910-875-5031. Stop signs, yield signs, speed limit signs and other traffic warning signs outside of the city limits should be reported to the Hoke County Office of the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NC DOT) at 910-875-3952.

A street name sign is a type of traffic sign used to identify named roads, generally those that do not qualify as expressways or highways. Street name signs are most often found posted at intersections; sometimes, especially in the United States, in perpendicularly oriented pairs identifying each of the crossing streets.

Modern street name signs may be mounted in various ways, such as attached to walls or on utility poles or smaller purpose-made sign poles posted on a streetcorner, or hung over intersections from overhead supports like wires or pylons. When attached to poles, they may be stacked onto each other in alternating directions or mounted perpendicular to each other, with each sign facing the street it represents. Until around 1900 in the USA, however, street name signs were often mounted on the corners of buildings, or even chiseled into the masonry, and many of those signs still exist in older neighborhoods. They are commonly used in France and the United Kingdom. The design and style of the sign is usually common to the district in which it appears.

Some street name signs also indicate the range of house numbers found nearby, and/or the name or number of the local administrative or postal district. Some street name signs also indicate an alternative name for the street, such as "Fashion Avenue" for Seventh Avenue in New York City, or "Avenue of the Arts" for Huntington Avenue in Boston, Massachusetts. Multilingual signs are common and may be required by law in some areas, such as French-speaking regions of Canada. Multilingual signs are sometimes primarily used to promote local minority languages. See bilingual sign for more information.

Occasionally some signs are a target for vandalism, for example in areas of language controversy; and signs on unusually or famously named streets (perhaps those containing a humorous or obscene word) are especially liable to street sign theft.

In recent years, many US and Canadian cities have adopted the mast arm for traffic signal equipment; major intersections are marked with large signs mounted on the mast arms. This was started in the 1960s by the California Department of Transportation. Los Angeles and San Francisco started in the 1970s and recently New York City has introduced the bigger signs at its intersections. In 2013, New York City began to change street signs that have been previously used Highway Gothic font for a new one, Clearview, that include both upper and lower case letters, which is considered more readable.[1]

Usually, the color scheme used on the sign just reflects the local standard (for example, white letters on a green background are common throughout the US). However, in some cases, the color of a sign can provide information, as well. One example can be found in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Within its city limits, all roads designated as a snow emergency route use a blue sign, these are typically major arterial routes. Other roads have green signs. Other places sometimes use blue or white signs to indicate private roads.

As of 2009[update], the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) approved color schemes for street name signs including a green, blue, or brown background with white text, or a white background with black text.[2] Despite the MUTCD's attempt to restrict street name signs to only the aforementioned color schemes, other color schemes are used in some cities. For example, the city of Mesa, Arizona uses ruby red colored street name signs at signalized intersections in the Fiesta District in the western part of the city. The city of Houston, Texas allows for street name signs in several of its neighborhoods (usually part of a management district, where property owners assess additional fees to themselves to pay for extra services) to be of significantly different color schemes and fonts than the citywide standard. Since the new MUTCD standard was adopted, some cities have begun transitioning from noncompliant colors. San Jose, California traditionally used white letters on a black background on its street name signs for many decades, but shifted during the 2010s to white letters on a green background.

In 1952 in the UK, David Kindersley submitted a design, MoT Serif, to the British Ministry of Transport, which required new lettering to use on United Kingdom road signs. Although the Road Research Laboratory found Kindersley's design more legible, the all-capitals design with serifs was passed over in favour of that of Jock Kinneir and Margaret Calvert. Many of the street signs in Britain use Kindersley fonts.[3]

Lincoln County maintains street signs throughout the county's jurisdiction to aid in wayfinding by citizens and emergency services. Missing street sign can be confusing and delay response by emergency responders and can turn into a life and death issue. Missing street signs should be reported to this office immediately. In order to report a missing sign you may use the online form linked below or by calling the number listed in this pages contact section.

Aluminum .040 is ideal for basic street signs. Their weatherproof and rigid qualities allow versatility in all settings. Our .040 aluminum is comparable to the thickness of a dime and has rounded corners for safety and a professional appearance. Printed with UV inks, our aluminum is fade resistant to keep your signs vibrant! The aluminum is painted white and coated to minimize corrosion, and will not rust.

Similar to our .040 but thicker. Upgrade to our .063 aluminum thickness for more durability with a more heavy-duty material. This is our recommended option for street signs that do not need to be reflective.

Opt for our 3M official reflective aluminum for high reflective visibility at night. The high visibility reflective surface meets ASTM D4956 Type I standards for non-critical signs. We offer this in both 3M official reflective aluminum thicknesses of .040 and .080. These are also printed with UV resistant inks to prevent fading in sunlight and will not rust. 041b061a72
