A Traffic Technician is a Union position. If you are not yet a member, we can help facilitate the onboarding process. Traffic Technicians direct traffic for road construction crews and or utility crews. Traffic Control Technicians hold a paddle with "Stop" on one side and "Slow" on the other which they use to help indicate motorists to slow down, stop, and pass through the work zone. Traffic Control Technicians often work in conjunction with other Traffic Control Technicians, with each standing at opposite ends of the construction area and coordinating traffic flow via communication, either via two-way radio or hand signals. At times, they will use the assistance of barricades, cones, vehicle placement, and other devices which they position alongside the roadway.
