There are a wide range of factors that need to be addressed for implementing effective road construction signs. Everything from understanding the need and types of signs available to addressing their design and placement requires careful thought and consideration.

With trusted professionals on your side, such as the experienced team at SignScapes in Detroit, MI, you’ll be able to tackle any challenges associated with these signs and roll out an effective signage strategy at your road construction site.

Understanding the Need for Road Construction Signs

It’s important to recognize why these signs are needed before investing in them. Doing so will help alleviate any confusion around the various sign functions, which could lead to misuse or misdirection. Road construction signs are needed for the following reasons:

  • Support safety for workers, site visitors, and road users
  • Improve traffic flow
  • Minimize disruptions
  • Provide clear directions and/or detour information
  • Prevent unauthorized individuals from entering the work site
  • Give clear instructions to workers
  • Advise necessary parties of any hazards onsite

Implementing signs for these reasons and more will help prevent accidents and liabilities. They will also help keep your business in compliance. Be sure to also ask us for more details about signage compliance with state, county, and/or municipal regulations for road construction signs.

Understanding the Types of Road Construction Signs

There is a wide range of sign types available to support the various needs for road construction signs. It may appear to be a challenging and daunting task to outfit your work site with all the signs it requires. However, this task doesn’t need to deter you when you can rely on guidance from our team. We recognize that not everyone may be familiar with the various types of signage, so you can count on our well-trained sign makers to guide you.

Some of the signage types include:

  • Road work signs
  • Work zone signs
  • Safety instruction signs
  • Detour signs
  • Traffic control signs

Understanding the Design of Road Construction Signs

When it comes to implementing signs that will be effective in achieving the noted objectives, design is key. Essential design features will contribute to these signs standing out and communicating their messages clearly and concisely. While many sign designs are fixed, others offer more flexibility when it comes to their design. In these instances, you’ll want to review additional information about their design features, including:

  • Effective sign coloration
  • Sufficient sign contrast
  • Optimal letter sizing
  • Appropriate graphics and wording

For fixed sign designs, we invite you to connect with us to browse our selection of pre-approved sign templates. For any sign types that offer the opportunity for a custom design, we’re happy to discuss your options.

Understanding the Placement of Road Construction Signs

In the same way that signage design is key for effective signs, so is their placement. Having signs in key locations at your work site will provide ample notice of work taking place, detours, hazards, and more critical information. However, if you’re not someone who’s well versed in these signs, it may be difficult to know where they should be placed.

You can count on our team to take the lead on installing your signs, which will make sure they are not only effective but also compliant with any state, county, and/or municipal regulations. At SignScapes, we recognize the importance of effective signage, and we’re ready to work with you on safe and proper installation.
