Street Signs

Columbia Rd Street Sign

You can request street sign services, including the replacement of missing or damaged signs, by calling the Mayor's Citywide Call Center at 311 or completing a service request online using the District government's Service Request Center. Please identify the specific location (i.e. address, intersection) and describe the specific message of the sign and whether a signpost is also needed.

Scheduled Response Time

  • STOP sign replacement: 24 hours
  • Traffic control sign replacement: 35 days
  • Parking sign replacement: 60 days
  • Street name sign replacement: 45 days

NOTE: Requests for "new" traffic control signs require investigation, determination, rulemaking, and if approved, publication in the DC Register. This process could take 4-6 months to complete.

DDOT's standard is to investigate and respond to sign requests within the timeframe indicated. Call the Mayor's Citywide Service Request Center at 311 or (202) 727-1000 if the problem hasn't been resolved by the specified time of completion. Reference your service request number.
