As we’ve noted before, there are more than 220,000 of the nation’s highway bridges in need of structural repair, rehabilitation work, or replacement. That’s almost one-third of the more than 618,000 bridges throughout the United States.
When this vital infrastructure work is being done, traffic can’t be simply stopped or even re-routed in many cases. Indeed, the typical project requires a certain amount of traffic control and maintenance of traffic.
And this means an essential need for traffic control equipment services.
