What's Your Question?
How Much Do Road Signs Cost?
The cost of road signs varies greatly depending on whether you’re buying parking signs, danger signs or Department of Transportation approved pedestrian traffic signs. Road signs are sometimes purchased as novelty items with a lower price than signs bought to replace actual street and traffic signs.
What’s Involved With Replacing Street Signs?
Street signs like parking signs, danger signs and do not enter signs are often replaced due to damage caused by an accident or even vandalism. The average cost of replacing a stop sign starts with about $50 to $75 for the sign itself. Because a stop sign is an important marker, these must be replaced as quickly as possible for the safety of drivers and pedestrians. Cities replacing street signs must mobilize a truck and crew to replace the sign. In general, this adds hundreds of dollars to the cost of a street sign including mileage, salaries and even engineering costs when signs must be removed. After factoring in these services, a stop sign might cost over $500 to replace.
The Average Price of Traffic Street Signs
The average price of traffic-type street signs varies with the size and type of the sign. While a stop sign might cost around $50 to $75 a reflective, engineer-grade “do not enter” sign made from aluminum averages about the same price. Pick out an “added lane warning sign” for about $45 or choose a bear crossing warning sign for about $90 at its largest size of 36 by 36 inches. Larger signs tend to cost more than smaller ones, and colorful signs add a little to the pricing as well.
What Do You Need With Your Street Sign?
Street signs generally require a post to hold them off of the ground. These posts come in U-channel designs for about $125 to around $200 per post. A square tube street sign post is approximately $10 to $15 per square foot, while breakaway posts in large sizes cost about $15 to $30 per foot. Cantilever signs and posts are some of the most expensive at about $15,000 per sign. Large guide signs are valued at about $20 to about $25 per square foot, and the electronic message variable signs might cost as much as $150,000.
Sign Pricing by Size
Big signs tend to cost much more than small signs. A foundation for a cantilever or bridge sign adds about $6,000 to the price of the sign itself. A sign bridge that crosses a major expressway or interstate highway costs about $30,000 to build. The largest signs or signs that are electronic are the most expensive for cities and states to purchase or replace. Irregularly shaped signs also tend to be a little more expensive than square or triangular signs.
Find Fun Signs for Decorations
No parking signs, danger signs and even parking signs are often purchased to provide decorative options for outdoor activities. A novelty street name sign might average around $20 for two lines of print in a reflective coloring. Choose silly signs like “wives crossing” or “horse parking only” for decoration with prices that range around the $30 price range. These prices also vary with the size and colors involved in the signs. Reflective signs tend to be easy to see even at night, but indoor signs are also available.
