To properly assign a curve a safe speed, you need to know the safe limits of the curve. To gather this information, we make successive passes on the curve until we can precisely determine the safe speed. All selected routes are driven to locate the beginning and end of every curve in relation to control point data. All curve related signs are logged and assigned to their respective curve. MasterMind® trained specialists perform this analysis per the procedure outlined in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices. The study has been computerized using input from a clinometer into our own RoadMaster™ Inventory field software. This ensures all information is precise and concise throughout the study.
After all data is collected and returned to the office, all curve and sign information is reviewed to ensure existing warning signs are correct and at the proper distance from the curve. Corrective measures are laid out in an easy to read report that is designed for your sign crew to use in the field. Study results are presented in our very own copyrighted graphical route layout report. Our reports make curves, signs, and control points easily viewed.
This inventory can be quoted to include a copy of MasterMind®’s SignMaster™ 7 sign management software. All collected curve sign information will be loaded into the software upon delivery. Work orders will be created, when needed, for curve sign additions and removals – ready for you to prioritize work and schedule maintenance crews.
