Sign Shop

Making stop signs

The Washington State Department of Transportation established a centralized sign shop in 1983 to provide signs in an efficient, economical and timely manner. Located at the South Central Region Complex in Union Gap, the Central Sign Shop is the only WSDOT sign fabrication shop in the state. Each month, an average of 7,000 square feet of signs are manufactured for the State of Washington. Each year, WSDOT, with the assistance of the Central Sign Shop, recycle about $150,000 per year in aluminum from old and damaged signs collected throughout the state.
