Providing America’s Leading Traffic Management Services
Area Wide Protective (AWP) is America’s Traffic Control Leader. Our commitment to traffic safety directly reflects our mission, which is to protect your people, your business, and your time. We deliver comprehensive traffic management services in support of infrastructure projects, construction, and utility work that improve roadways and communities across the country. We specialize in supplying the manpower to guide traffic safely around work zones. We also provide traffic consultation and traffic design services, as well as traffic control equipment rental.
Protecting Your People
AWP provides best-in-class safety training and equipment. Every work zone that we develop complies with the appropriate local, state, or federal agency’s regulations and standards. All of our team members in the field are required to complete 40+ hours of training during their onboarding process. This onboarding training includes ATSSA Flagger training, temporary traffic control training, state-specific TTC training (as required), First Aid & CPR training, Smith System Defensive Driver training, and other health and safety training classes. We equip our people to keep your people safe.
Protecting Your Business
Our goal is to serve as an extension of your company by providing safe, comprehensive traffic control service as efficiently and economically as possible. With more than 60 offices across 20 states, you greatly benefit by having just ONE traffic control provider to work with across multiple states and regions. You have the advantage of our expertise in local regulations and our existing working relationships with regulators. AWP also protects you with significant liability coverage on every project. Furthermore, our strategic initiatives team is dedicated to ongoing business development, which assures that you are partnering with an aggressive team committed to continual process improvement that helps protect your business.

Our Philanthropic Footprint.
AWP continues our ongoing commitment to provide support and service to the communities we work in and and to charitable organizations. Each year, we dedicate numerous hours of service to Habitat for Humanity. Every year since 2013, we have collaborated with the Marine Corps Marathon to provide a wide range of traffic control services for their annual event series.
