New York City Department of Transportation's Sign Shop Tour

OHNY members-only


 

Get a first-hand look at the production and refurbishment process of the New York City Department of Transportation's signs with OHNY! Located in Maspeth, Queens, the NYC DOT's Sign Shop is responsible for outfitting New York City’s 6,000 miles of streets and roadways with the signs that point New Yorkers in the right direction, whether they’re on foot, on a bike or in a motor vehicle. Learn how a crew of 22 employees fabricate 9,000-12,000 signs a month for all five boroughs, ranging from large highway signs down to Alternate Side Parking signs.
