Advanced Operations & Setups

Advanced Traffic Control

Specific job sites require advanced flagging operations, particularly in urban areas where traffic approaches from various directions or lanes converge.

Due to the volume, speed, and complexity of traffic situations, collaboration and close coordination between multiple flaggers is necessary. Appropriate signage and advance notice of traffic flow patterns help minimize traffic disruptions and keep crews safe while giving them the space and time to do their jobs.

Advanced flagging operations can include multiple lane closures, busy intersections, traffic circles, highway ramp and merging lane restrictions, and other circumstances where traffic volume, speed, and roadway complexity can make roadwork dangerous.

    Every job site is unique, so we take the time and care to analyze the unique nature of your project and plan advanced traffic control services accordingly.

    Communication Is the Key


    Effective communication is crucial on a job site with various parties involved. It’s essential to consider the needs of the traveling public, pedestrians, and all workers on the job site. With our Flagger Force professionals managing traffic in a work zone, communication occurs on three different tiers:

    • Flagger Force & Flagger Force: Our crew members need to maintain constant contact—verbal or non-verbal with each other while managing traffic in a work zone. We train our crew members to communicate clearly and concisely to reduce the safety risk of miscommunication. For example, they must always communicate which traffic lane is flowing at all times.
    • Flagger Force & Client:  During more intricate work zone setups, there are many moving parts, from busy traffic patterns to the movement of construction equipment. Clear lines of communication and standard procedures are reviewed during the pre-job safety discussion with our crew members and the client. Our flaggers are trained to carefully observe the movements of construction activity and traffic flow through the work zone. By prioritizing effective communication between our crew members and your crew members, we can adapt to changes and ensure everyone is aware of modifications to traffic flow and direction.
    • Flagger Force & Community Members: To keep traffic moving safely through work zones, our crew members follow proper traffic control procedures and utilize the appropriate devices for each job. They wear high-visibility personal protective equipment that meets all safety requirements. Our crew members are also trained to establish eye contact and use verbal and non-verbal cues to safely guide motorists and pedestrians through the work zone.
