Signs within work areas

Barricades, vertical panels, cones, tubes, and drums are the most commonly used devices to alert drivers of unusual or potentially dangerous conditions in highway and street work areas. They are used to guide drivers safely through the work zone. At night they are often equipped with flashing or steady burn lights.

Large flashing or sequencing arrow panels may be used in work zones both day and night to guide drivers into certain traffic lanes, and to inform them that part of the road or street ahead of them is closed.

Flagpersons are often provided in highway and street work zones to stop, slow, or guide traffic safely through the area. Flagpersons generally wear orange vests, shirts or jackets, and use red flags or stop/slow paddles to direct traffic through work zones.
