Traffic Sign Installation Services

The City is seeking bids from qualified vendors to install traffic signs within the city limits. This request for proposals is to select a qualified vendor for the installation of street signs. It is the City’s objective to select multiple vendors based on the request for proposals for a three-year contract. The contract will have fixed pricing with possible annual price increases.

The installation of traffic signs will follow methods that are set in the 2018 NCDOT Standard Specification 900, 903, & 904.

While the City is flexible with respect to certain elements of the Traffic Sign Installation Services, the City has specific requirements and preferences for the Service delivery method.
