Mission is to promote traffic safety and efficiency by providing
for the orderly movement of all road users on streets and
highways throughout Mohave County
The Traffic Control Division is
responsible for installing and maintaining traffic signs and highway striping.
The division currently maintains approximately 25,000 traffic control devices
including regulatory signs, warning signs, guide and street name signs.
Approximately 98% of the traffic signs used by the division are manufactured
at the Kingman facility. Signs are manufactured by applying plotter cut vinyl
sheeting from a computer based graphic design system. This computer based system
utilizes software provided by Gerber Scientific. The reflective and non-reflective
vinyl sheeting products are supplied by 3M Company.
The division applies traffic paint to the centerline
Ferry Rd. utilizing a 1998 Morton TMT257P Highway
In addition to traffic
signing, the division is responsible for centerline striping, edge line
striping, crosswalk markings, stop line markings, and other special pavement
markings. The division utilizes a lead free/water based traffic paint. This
product is not only environmentally safe, but safe for the personnel involved in
the application. Highway safety spheres (glass beads) are imbedded into the wet
traffic paint as it is applied. This process provides marking reflectivity for
night time driving conditions. Crosswalk markings and stop line markings are
installed either by utilizing an adhesive reflective pavement tape or by
torch-fusing thermoplastic to the roadway surface. The division currently
maintains over 300 miles of centerline striped roadway, approximately 150 miles
of edge lined roadway, over 1,600 stop lines and approximately 20 crosswalks.
Division technicians apply a torch-fused thermoplastic
stop line to an asphalt intersection
