When should an arrow board be used?

Arrow boards are often used to direct traffic in TTC, or temporary traffic control, zones. Arrow or chevron boards are used to advise approaching traffic of lane closures or diversions in heavy traffic volumes, high speeds and limited sight distances. According to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), an arrow panel should “provide additional warning and directional information to assist in merging and controlling road users through or around a TTC zone.”

Are there restrictions on where signs or reflective markers can be placed?

Before installing signs or reflective markers, it is important to review local ordinances to ensure compliance. Typically, a permit is necessary for placing or using reflective signs or markers in public spaces. Regulations for temporary signs, including yard signs and construction site signs, commonly outline guidelines and restrictions for placement and quantity and any necessary permits. Need more help?

How does an attenuator truck enhance safety in work zones?

Attenuator trucks play a critical role in promoting a safe work environment. In areas where construction and maintenance activities are taking place, attenuator trucks minimize the damage caused by vehicle collisions by absorbing and lessening the impact of vehicle crashes and collisions. Attenuator trucks serve as a protective measure for both roadside workers and passing motorists, potentially preventing serious injuries or fatalities.
