Street Name Signs

Provide Clear Direction To Motorists By Posting Our Durable Street Name Signs

Your standardized street sign is a type of traffic sign used to identify named roads and residential streets, generally any roadway or street that does not qualify as an expressway or highway. Street name signs are most often found posted at residential intersections, usually perpendicularly mounted over one another in pairs identifying each of the crossing streets. Street name signs should be installed at all street intersections in urban areas regardless of other route signs that might be present. In rural areas, street name signage should be installed to identify important roadways or routes that are not otherwise signed. In compliance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), the visibility of these signs is enhanced with the 3M reflective sheeting that is used on the face of the signs for better visibility at night, in stormy weather, and in areas with competing lights.

Important Information to Keep In Mind When Ordering Street Name Signs

Sign Blade Size and Letter Height: According to the Federal Highway Administration’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), if a Street Name Sign is used on a local road with speed limits of 25 MPH or less, then the sign blade size shall be 6 inches tall with 4 inch tall upper-case letters and 3 inch tall lower-case letters. For roadways with speed limits greater than 25 MPH, the MUTCD suggests that the sign blade size shall be 9 inches tall with 6 inch tall upper-case letters and 4.5 inch tall lower-case letters. Street name sign sizes vary in width, ranging from 18 to 48 inches. Generally the width of a sign correlates to the amount of characters that need to be displayed.

Street Name Compliant Colors: Street name signs most commonly have a green background with white lettering that you’ll see located within residential areas. Other colors accepted by the MUTCD are white lettering on either blue or brown background, or black lettering on white background. Novelty street name signs with any other color that is not listed as compliant by the MUTCD are not allowed on public or private roadways.

Prefix and Suffix Use: Signage used to designate a street name or roadway will typically include supplementary text (a prefix and/or suffix). The purpose of this accompanying text is to clarify for motorists and pedestrians the type of pathway they’re traveling on. Street Name Signs may be located on an avenue, boulevard, parkway or drive, just to name a few examples. This supplementary text must be abbreviated, formatted in smaller text and use upper and lower case letters in the title case format.
