RoadSafe Expands Industrial Services Operations to the Pacific Northwest
RoadSafe Traffic Systems, the nation’s largest provider of traffic safety services and products, announced today that their Industrial Services Group (ISG) has expanded traffic safety operations for utility companies and their contractors to the Pacific Northwest. New locations include the Seattle and Spokane areas in Washington State and a facility near Portland, Oregon.
For many years RoadSafe has dispatched traveling crew members in response to large railroad customers requiring traffic safety set-ups when performing construction and maintenance work on their respective systems. According to Dave Meirick, RoadSafe’s President and CEO, “We’ve never had permanent locations in the Northwest from which to operate for our railroad customers but now with an increased demand by utility companies and their contractors for work zone safety, it only made sense to open these strategically located facilities. Our operations teams and traffic equipment resources are readily available for optimal traffic control in order to protect workers and the motoring public.”
Services by RoadSafe include flagging operations using automated flagger assistance devices (AFAD) and temporary traffic signals to reduce worker exposure on roadways. RoadSafe is also handling lane and shoulder closure set-ups so customers can focus on their core work, leaving the work zone safety to RoadSafe.
