Over Height/Over Width Warning Systems
Bridge construction requires false work that reduces clearance heights and widths. Everyone has seen video of trucks crashing into low bridges and false work. Static signs often don’t get their attention. These systems pair a sensor with a message board and/or flashing lights to warn drivers when they must exit. They work well, especially in areas with a high volume of cross country truck traffic.
Road-Tech has experience with a wide variety of sensors including over height, over width, flood detection, ice sensors, fog sensors and even wind sensors. The key in every case is good locations for both the sensors and the warning devices and a distance between them resulting in timely warnings that drivers respect and obey.
