Contractor identification sign in work zones
Texas DOT requires this type of signing on all construction projects and maintenance projects that are let by TxDOT, except on projects where this is not practical such as a districtwide contract for mowing. Local municipalities or county authorities vary in their requirements and application of this sign.
Typically Standard Sheet BC(2)-03 is inserted into plan sets to detail typical use and placement. The contractor’s name and address (including city and state) are included on the sign (number SG20-6). These are typically mounted below a SG20-1 sign (Begin Road Work Next X Miles). The contractor name sign is made with black letters on a white retroreflective background as other regulatory signs. TxDOT does allow it to be made on orange sheeting constructed in one piece with the SG20-1 sign.
The above Standard Sheet BC(2)-03 contains additional information on TxDOT’s use of this sign and may be found online at http://www.dot.state.tx.us/business/standardplanfiles.htm under the heading “Traffic Engineering Standard Plan Sheets (English and Metric)”.
