Traffic sign issue

You can report a traffic sign that needs repair, or request the installation or removal of a sign.

What to do

If a sign is missing, damaged or is a threat to public safety

  • Report any missing, damaged or worn signs, or signs completely covered by graffiti. 
  • If a sign is only partially covered by graffiti, report graffiti instead.
  • If a stop sign is down or a sign is blocking traffic, call 911.

To complete the report, you must provide an email address. We'll email you with a case number and expected completion date.
