Lane Control Signs (LCS)

Lane Control Signs (LCS) powered by SWARCO, provide lane status to en-route motorists through high-quality LED displays. Strategically placed, these signs improve overall traffic flow and commuter safety by informing drivers of lane closures and directing traffic to open lanes. LCS applications are commonly used in Active Traffic Management corridors, airport entrances, toll lanes, and parking garages.
