AWP Provides Traffic Control Management for Events Across the U.S.

AWP Event Services Team has been busy over the past few months managing road closures and detours for event routes throughout the U.S.

We kicked off the year in Atlanta, where AWP handled traffic safety for the NFL Super Bowl. Earlier this spring, as in years past, AWP crews handled special event traffic and pedestrian control  for the Savannah St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which has been a Georgia tradition for more than 200 years.

Crews are already at work planning traffic management for some of the summer’s biggest music festivals, including the Lockn’ Festival in Arrington, VA, as well as the US Army 10 Miler which will take place later in the year.

Traffic Management for Regional and National Events

Although most events have a festive tone, some mark historic and somber moments, as was the case when AWP was called upon to manage the route for the funeral of President George H.W. Bush.

While every event is unique, they all have one thing in common: “You get one chance to get it right,” said Todd Crider, AWP’s Manager of Event Services.

Fortunately, AWP has the resources and expertise to get it right. Those resources include a specialized Event Services Division, engineers who create detailed plans adhering to DOT or APS specs. Serving a 19-state area, AWP can deploy the equipment, personnel, and technology necessary to provide temporary traffic control setups and traffic management for virtually any event.
