About Our Sidewalk Closed Signs

Within the field of construction, sidewalk signs are necessary to guide traffic and inform the public of safety or building information. These signs, which are often required by the city, have to have several characteristics in order to make sure they are effective for avoiding accidents and keeping pedestrians and workers safe. For example, these signs need to be:
  • Clear and Easily Visible
  • Fire Retardant
  • Weather Resistant

They are almost always made out of metal. Construction that may affect the sidewalk has to have these sidewalk closed signs or other MUTCD signs in a visible location guiding pedestrians to go left, go right, detour, or avoid the sidewalk altogether.

Sizes can vary considerably. We encourage you to contact us if you have sizing questions or issue. We traditionally make these signs on white metal, or using engineering grade reflective material. Because we recognize that there are hefty fines if the signs are not properly in place, we do offer hand delivery to all 5 boroughs in NYC, with rush service available if needed. Used by contractors, architects, demolitions, scaffolding companies, builders, and property owners, these signs are important for many projects.

In addition to signs like our sidewalk closed signs and reflective signs with arrows, we also have several other construction and contractor signs required by the NYC DOB. Don’t forget to inquire about these signs along with rush orders.
