Streets Division,
2007-2012 Sign Replacement Program

This program shall set forth the standards created by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) regarding traffic control devices. In the early 1990’s the FHWA required all state and local agencies to adopt and comply with the directives outlined in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). The Crystal Lake Public Works Streets Division has established a Sign Replacement Program to bring into compliance all of the traffic control signs within the City of Crystal Lake. This program will proceed from FY-2007 through FY- 2012. Each Fiscal Year will be outlined in the program.

The Sign Replacement Program will involve upgrading and replacing all of the current traffic control signs; sign face materials, and signs posts. It will assist in the development and creation of a traffic control sign inventory for future expansion and routine maintenance issues. The information will be collected using GPS technology, which will be integrated with the City’s GPS mapping system.


The Sign Replacement Program will proceed from 2007 through 2012.
Each year is outlined as follows:
