  Traffic Services Division
 

Scott Baker, Traffic Services Coordinator, and Steve Purcell make up the Traffic Services Division. They are well versed in the Minnesota Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MMUTCD) which establishes uniformity, consistency and safety in the materials, sizes, types, installation and placement of traffic signs and pavement markings. Together they assure that the 4400 signs and 1200 miles of pavement striping are placed properly, repaired or reinstalled when damaged, destroyed or stolen. They provide assistance to our maintenance crews for traffic control during maintenance projects and operations and also provide assistance to townships and cities with their traffic signing and marking needs. They also install the safety ‘break-away’, snow plow friendly mailbox posts on construction projects and for other property owners when requested.
