Efficient traffic flow is vital to ensuring the safety of a worksite, especially along a roadway. Distracted drivers provide a real problem for workers trying to get a job done safely, but using effective barricades in Seattle, WA, certainly helps. These obstructions draw attention to themselves with bright colors and lights that make drivers aware they need to slow down and be cautious.
We know a lot about traffic barricades at AABCO Barricade and Sign Co., and we’re going to discuss them here, so you have the information you need to select the right ones for your job site.
Orange and white water-filled barriers can be placed to blockade a space of any size. Once filled, they are heavy and deliver appropriate area control. Perfect complements to the water-filled variety are Type I, II, and III barricades. Types I and II include orange and white diagonal stripes along with flashing orange lights. Type III units are tall barriers with triple panels that are striped as well. Lights can be added to these also. All three models work well to alert drivers of areas of construction and decreased traffic flow.
Traffic control applies to crowds as well. Water-filled barriers can be employed for this purpose, or you can use pedestrian barricades. As you can see, there are many options for safely directing and controlling traffic flow.
