The Sign Shop —a section the the Streets Division—installs and maintains traffic signs within the City limits. The crew also fabricates new signs for use all over the City. The Sign Shop utilizes aluminum precut shapes and prepares them with either reflective or non-reflective sheeting. The letters and/or symbols are computer-generated onto transfer sheeting and placed on the sign. The crew also performs periodic sign inspections, ensuring that regulatory and directional signs are installed at standard heights, as required in the Uniform Traffic Control Manual. Additionally, this crew straightens, replaces, and cleans the signs, posts, and hardware when necessary.
