We love it too! Our first installation (phase 1) at 41st St – Colby Ave was a maintenance test to see if we can reduce graffiti tagging by use of decorative wraps and it was a success. Our signal maintenance crew is under-staffed by industry standards. This is a trial to update infrastructure in a way that leads to reduced graffiti call outs to more efficiently use our small crew.
Our next round of installations (phase 2) at Evergreen Way – Madison St and Evergreen Way – Holly Dr are at locations that had been tagged with graffiti earlier this year. This test will again run 6 months from the beginning of September 2018 and we have no plans to install more until we at least have a 6-month track record of positive results in discouraging tagging. Please check back in March 2019 for an update.

Wraps on suitable cabinets cost approximately $2,000 to $2,900 depending on the size of the cabinet. Unsuitable cabinets require replacement before a traffic wrap could be installed. The cost to replace a traffic signal cabinet is approximately $16,500 to $18,000, including the Traffic Wrap installation.
No, many cabinets are unsuitable. Any cabinet that has been painted is unable to have a traffic wrap installation for manufacturing reasons. Any cabinet that is nearing its end of service life, or no longer meets the current standard specifications is also an unsuitable cabinet, because they need to be replaced before a Traffic Wrap can be installed.
There are a total of 177 signal cabinets in Everett and at least 93 of them are not suitable cabinets for one or more of the reasons listed in FAQ 6. Of those 93 unsuitable cabinets, 34 are unsuitable only because they have been painted. This number is large enough that if the phase 2 tests are successful we will consider a phase 3 test where we work with the Manufacturer and wrap a painted cabinet to see if we are okay with the quality of a wrapped painted cabinet to try and reduce the number of unsuitable cabinets.
