Event Traffic Control

Our Dedicated Events Team Is an Extension of Your Team

Whether you put on a major outdoor concert, close a neighborhood block for food and music, or host a run around the Lake or across the City, we know what it takes. Warning Lites understands everything an organizer has to oversee while planning an event. We know traffic control and crowd management isn’t your specialty. That’s why we take the extra steps to work with the permitting departments and police on your behalf to design and implement the vehicle and pedestrian traffic control.

Because we have many years of experience planning and executing events, city officials and police departments trust our designs and ideas. When you let us handle what makes us great, you’re free to handle what makes you great.

  • Runs: from the 1-mile to 26.2, bi’s, tri’s and   relays
  • Bike races and tours
  • Outdoor concerts
  • Block parties
  • Movies and commercial shoots
  • Parades
  • Political events
  • Corporate events
  • Crowd control for business/retailer events
