Success Story: City of Cotati, CA

MUTCD Sign Inventories

Cyvl joined forces with the Cotati Department of Public Works to improve Street Sign Management and Safety within the City.

This project covered 23.5 centerline miles and involved comprehensive inventorying of 1,446 MUTCD street signs, supported by 2D and 360-camera imagery captured every 5 feet.


Cotati faced the challenge of efficiently managing and maintaining street signs across its network while ensuring compliance with MUTCD standards.Ensuring sign visibility, accurate inventory, and timely replacements were crucial for road safety and compliance. So, the city sought a solution that would address these concerns.


Cotati decided to use Cyvl’s advanced mobile LiDAR solution to streamline its sign management processes in order to ensure a safe community for its citizens.Cyvl approach combined precision inventorying of MUTCD signs with visual documentation through imagery captured by Cyvl’s sensor.
