Special Event Traffic Control

Traffic management is an essential part of event planning, and at Warning Lites of Appleton, we understand how overwhelming it can be. When hundreds or thousands of people are descending upon a city space or public area, it is important to make sure motorists and pedestrians remain safe throughout the entire course of the event or festival.

Our team is here to help you devise a successful traffic control plan to create a safe environment for both road users and pedestrians. This involves creating detours, road closures, temporary parking restrictions, lane closures, setting up barricades, and more. We provide equipment rentals and sales and proudly serve clients across Wisconsin.

You Bring in the Crowd, We’ll Keep Them Safe

Designing Traffic Plans to Make Your Event a Success

We work individually with each client to ensure they are provided with customized solutions. Safety is our number-one priority! To ensure your event goes off without a hitch, we will coordinate with your event organizers, law enforcement, and any other necessary agencies involved with your project.

Keeping Motorists & Pedestrians Safe

During an event, pedestrian safety is one of our first concerns. We work together with you to devise a pedestrian management plan to ensure a smooth flow of foot traffic as well as safe driving conditions for motorists. Implementing the pedestrian management plan may involve installing the right traffic control devices that meet your needs, including ADA pedestrian devices.

Road Closures & Detours

To minimize traffic jams and potential accidents, our team will work with you to create a road closure plan and detour routes for motorists, outside pedestrians, and cyclists. Detouring vehicle traffic away from your event can minimize congestion and increase safety for those on foot.
