Signs and pavement markings are an important part of ensuring safe streets for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians. Signs and pavement markings are installed based on the Minnesota Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, standard engineering practice and a review of site specific traffic conditions by the Department of Public Works. The concept is to provide the best overall traffic management without over-regulation or undue sign clutter.
The City of Saint Paul maintains over 65,000 signs including regulatory signs (such as stop signs, yield signs, and no parking signs), warning signs (such as signal ahead or pedestrian crossing) and guide and information signs (such as street name signs). There are over 3 million linear feet of pavement lane lines, over 1,700 pavement markings such as turn arrows, and over 1,930 marked crosswalks in the City of Saint Paul. Signs and pavement markings are considered part of a "Complete Street" where all users whether vehicle, pedestrian or bicyclist are considered together. Requests to address traffic and safety issues with signs or pavement markings are reviewed based on the above standards with an eye to balancing the needs of all users. It may be that more and different signs and pavement markings may not be the best or safest way to address a concern or issue. We also rely on enforcement, education and other forms of encouragement.
The starting point to address a specific concern is to call Public Works Traffic Engineering 651-266-6200. Explain where the location of the problem is and what the specific problems are so we may review and respond back to you.
