Street Sign Replacement

The purpose of the program is to provide a detailed and thorough policy on the initial, systematic replacement of all street signs throughout the Town of Mount Pleasant. This policy is in response to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) mandate requiring municipalities to develop a master plan to bring all street signs to their minimum retroreflectivity requirements. The deadlines have since been removed, but the Town’s goal is to have all signs updated and installed by 2020. The goal of this policy is to create a consistent approach to the replacement process in regards to both existing infrastructure as well as future development throughout the Town. New signs shall be logged and entered into the Town’s asset management database to be used in the development of a maintenance and replacement cycle. The policy shall also serve to address future requests for special sign posts.  Click on this link for more information on the Street Sign Replacement Policy or contact:

Traffic Calming Devices

The Town of Mount Pleasant Transportation Department offers traffic calming solutions through the Traffic Calming Program.  The program currently employs two types traffic calming devices, speed humps and all-way stop controls. Speed humps are parabolic in shape and measure 12 feet long in the travel direction and 3.5” high at the apex. The Transportation Department staff accepts applications for Traffic Calming Program each July.  However, requests can be made to the Transportation Department anytime during the year and staff will confirm the street section is eligible for the program.   Staff will compile a database of requests and will notify each potential applicant in June to alert them of the exact date application packets are available.   For speed hump applications, the eligible requests will be ranked according to the evaluation factors to determine the installation sequence. The ranking will also be used to determine which projects will be financed if more speed humps are applied for than money is available.

Pavement Preservation

Prioritizing the resurfacing of existing paved roads will be done utilizing our computerized Pavement Management System, which is based on the technical evaluation of the overall condition of each road. This eliminates the need for request for resurfacing of specific roads. Please click on this link for the current Resurfacing Plan or contact:
