Not all traffic control services are continuous or long-term. Sometimes the control of vehicles and pedestrians is required at irregular, short-term intervals. This is commonly seen when traffic is held up or diverted for brief periods – just enough to complete a specific task or portion of work. Then on to the next phase for the crew. To meet this unique need, Roadway Construction Service offers unsurpassed intermittent traffic control services for a variety of projects.

What type of projects typically utilize intermittent traffic control services? Film production is one example – and a common one on the streets of Southern California. Of course, this isn’t the only kind of project requiring intermittent solutions. These unique services are employed in a variety of situations.
While these services are unique in one sense, their strategies incorporate virtually all the elements central to our conventional, long-term solutions. As with every other endeavor in our repertoire, the launch point for intermittent solutions is traffic control planning.
Traffic Control Planning
Planning the implementation of intermittent traffic control solutions requires a deep understanding of project conditions. What sets these plans apart is this — the strategic considerations of long-term projects now take a back seat to the tactical needs of intermittent solutions. Strategists are required to develop a plan that facilitates quick response – crews must be ready to set up, get up, and get out with uncanny speed. The time space is minutes not hours. Since timing is crucial when carrying out intermittent solutions, the speed element is central to any related traffic control plan.
It’s important to remember that no traffic control plan is complete until all interested parties are satisfied. And this group includes more than the members of the Roadway Construction Service team.
Any plan crafted by us also must meet the approval of municipal officials and business leaders – the people responsible for safe and efficient traffic conditions in the communities they serve. Unless they grant us the necessary permits to move forward, no project can get the green light.
Traffic Control Solutions
Fortunately, Roadway Construction Service has a deep reservoir of knowledge, making us thoroughly familiar with the codes and regulations applicable to intermittent traffic control solutions. We also have valuable, long-standing relationships with local decision makers. The two above advantages help us expedite the traffic permitting process and eliminate frustrating, costly delays. In record time, permits are granted, hassles are avoided, and projects are launched.
Traffic Control Flaggers & Guards
As with long-term projects, our traffic control flaggers play a key role when implementing intermittent solutions. Rest assured, they’ve been rigorously trained for the mission. When out in the field, they’re ready to respond quickly and maximize safety.
Traffic Control Barriers
Intermittent services share one other area of common ground with long-term solutions — the use of traffic control barriers. K rail barriers, various traffic control delineators, and cones are among the barricades commonly used for the short-interval operations.
These barriers typically are used in conjunction with traffic control flaggers to ensure unparalleled effectiveness of lane closures, detours, and other solutions incorporated in our intermittent traffic control services. But what else would you expect? Roadway Construction Service is all about excellence. From thorough traffic control planning to expert traffic control flaggers, the building blocks of first-rate service are always in plentiful supply.
