WisDOT’s ability to procure traffic control equipment at a quantity

The list was developed to support the recommendations set forth in
WisDOT’s Emergency Traffic Control and Scene Management Guidelines.
Agencies that would like to purchase items from the procurement list
should contact the appropriate vendor directly using the contact list
in the document.
