24/7 Emergency Response Traffic Control
Burst water mains, traffic accidents, power outages…When an urgent situation arises, a city must be ready to react with lightning speed. Every minute lost can be crucial. Fortunately, Los Angeles and Orange County can rely on Roadway Construction Service (RCS) for prompt 24/7 emergency response traffic control services in times of critical need.
Taking the Right Steps
RCS understands that every second counts in an emergency situation. That’s why we maintain a full staff of live personnel to answer urgent calls. Every call is promptly routed for a quick response.
Once alerted, RCS immediately sets a response plan in motion. Critical at this stage is devising a strategy that minimizes damage and maximizes all available resources – all in the shortest amount of time.
Planning typically consists of the following components:
- Rapid assessment, using map
- On-site assessment
- Coordinating with contractors to devise an action plan and deploy appropriate equipment
During the planning stage,Roadway Construction Service typically collaborates with all other involved parties. These might include The City, Southern California Edison, The Gas Company, etc.
Emergency Situation in Orange County, CA
Recently, a pipe burst at a Newport Beach, CA pump station, sending water gushing everywhere. Getting the call, Roadway Construction Service quickly devised and implemented a plan that allowed repair equipment into the problem zone – within one hour! While trucks rushed the necessary equipment to the pump station, RCS crews handled traffic control:
- Lane closures
- Road closures
- Flagging for pedestrian traffic heading to and from the beach, including bicyclists and pedestrians with dogs.
The response plan also required the closure of a ramp at Pacific Coast Highway, a major corridor leading in and out of the Newport Beach. Despite the challenges of managing vehicle and pedestrian traffic in a critical situation, RCS kept things well under control for entire two-week repair period.
