All sign installations must conform to the MUTCD (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices) which provides a set of standards for the placement of regulatory, warning and guide signs. The City of Pinellas Park fabricates, installs, and maintains over 10,000 signs. The sign shop also produces and installs vehicle graphics for all departments in the City and produces banners and special display boards for the many activities the City conducts throughout the year for residents.
The Transportation Division is responsible for ensuring that all City stop bars, crosswalks, lane lines, and parking stalls conform to the MUTCD. The Traffic Division uses paint and thermoplastic to accomplish this. Paint is used in areas where vehicle traffic is light, and thermoplastic is used where traffic is heavy or a dangerous situation exists.
The Transportation Division is responsible for maintaining 45 traffic signals within the city limits. These signals are monitored for optimum operation and capacity. The goal in the timing of traffic signals is to limit traffic travel time and delays. All malfunctions should be reported to the Traffic Division or contact Pinellas County Traffic Signal Operations directly at 727-464-8900.
The City's street lighting system is designed to provide safe vehicle operation and safety for pedestrians. The City's street lighting system consists of over 5,800 lights

Traffic studies are conducted to see if a location meets certain warrants that are recommended by the MUTCD (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices). The MUTCD contains the minimum requirements for installation of signs, signals, and markings. Traffic studies include speed studies, traffic volume counts, signal warrant studies, accident history, and pedestrian activity. These studies are vital in determining where and what type of traffic control is needed at various locations.
