They come in all shapes and sizes. They display a wide spectrum of messages. And they are vital for the maintenance of traffic control during construction projects, road closures, and public events. These very important items are traffic signs. Given the importance of such signage, Roadway Construction Service makes traffic sign rental a top priority.

Along with providing a full range of other traffic management services, supplying clients with this messaging equipment is a crucial part of our system of solutions. Without such signage expertly deployed, traffic efficiency and worksite safety would be substantially compromised. But don’t worry. No matter what you need, including expert lane closures and detour signage rental and management, our sign services have you covered.
Traffic Message Board Rental Services
A major component of our traffic sign rental program is traffic message board rental. Don’t, however, let the term ‘board’ fool you. This form of signage is not a rectangular piece of wood imprinted with words and mounted on a post. A message board is a large, portable electronic screen that displays messages and warnings visible from a long distance. We’ve all seen these devices lit up on the sides of freeways and roads. A typical message might be something like ‘Road Construction Ahead. Expect Delays.’ Understandably, this high visibility signage is becoming increasingly common. Addressing this rising demand, Roadway Construction Service has developed a responsive traffic message board rental program capable of meeting a variety of needs.
MUTCD Traffic Control Devices
Conventional, low-tech signage also is an important component of our program of equipment rental for traffic control. How extensive is the messaging covered by standard, non-electronic signage? The MUTCD sign chart used by our team reveals the scope of possibilities. (MUTCD stands for Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices, a guide established by the Federal Highway Administration). As an MUTCD compliant company, we rely on this chart to help us maintain the high standards set forth by the Highway Administration.
Most of the chart’s messaging is very familiar to motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Everything from the often-seen STOP to the less common graphic of a tractor driver may be found on a sign. The challenge to Roadway Construction Service is this – we must know when, where, and how to deploy each sign to maximize efficiency and safety. Such insight can develop only through years of applied skill and dedication, two qualities we’ve worked hard to perfect.
Traffic Guards and Flaggers
While expertly deployed signage is a major component of our acclaimed traffic control program, equipment alone won’t get the job done. On some level, humans must step in and make a major contribution. That contribution typically is made by our traffic flaggers. Maintaining a close watch on surrounding conditions, these experts utilize hand-held signs to direct and warn motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. But they’re communication duties go beyond signaling passersby. Our traffic flaggers also ‘talk’ to each other with hand signals, combining both instinct and well-honed powers of observation to judge road conditions and anticipate problems.
For Roadway Construction Service, then, effective traffic management is the result of a careful balance between personnel and equipment. On the personnel side is our team of flaggers; and on the hardware side is a ready supply of sturdy equipment, such as the kind provided by our traffic sign rental program. By striking this important balance, Roadway Construction Service has earned a well-deserved reputation as a leader in the field of traffic control rental services.
