GIS assists with sign inventory and MUTCD upgrades

The City of Lake Forest has begun to take an inventory and place
orders for signs throughout the city. GIS was able to provide accurate
tables of sign counts for Public Works. Using these counts employees
were able to categorize work zones by ward and know how many signs they
would be dealing with from certain categories, such as regulatory and
warning signs.

In addition to counting the signs, the tables helped employees by
allowing them to know what kind of signs they would need to upgrade to
meet the upcoming MUTCD standards for 2012. MUTCD stands for Manual on
Uniform Traffic Control Devices, and sets the standard on sign
dimensions and visibility. The City met with a client to discuss
upgrades and place orders, and having the tables and access to GIS for
visual reference proved to be increase the work management of the
project.
