Traffic Specialties

Sometimes a lot of little things add up to make a big difference.

This concept perfectly describes how traffic specialties improve roadway safety and relieve traffic congestion. Traffic Engineers deploy a series of small changes that add up to large improvements.

Traffic calming is a great example of a traffic specialty that regulates both vehicles and pedestrians by subtly encouraging drivers to slow down in congested areas. Often engineers will slightly reduce the size of driving lanes, add calming islands and improve pavement markings. These small changes work together to relieve congestion and make roads safer.

Wayfinding signs are another great example of specialty traffic solutions. Even in an age where everyone has GPS on their telephones, nothing is more reliable than a little green sign that regularly and reliably directs people to the local zoo, greenway or parking facility.

Turning lanes, merging lanes, decelerating lanes and specialty turn lanes…all are examples of small improvements that work together to improve the quality of life in a community.
