I just moved to Boston from Atlanta and wanted to show my support for the city and its construction workers.
One of the first things I noticed when I moved was how much less expensive my house is than it used to be.
And I’m not the only one.
When it comes to building, the cost of a house has increased at a rate that’s almost double that of inflation.
But there are a lot of people who aren’t as lucky as I am.
For every person in the United States who’s paid a fair price for their house, there are dozens of people whose house is a bit less than it was when I bought it.
If you’re not sure where to start, let me tell you what I’ve learned.
There’s no “right” way to fix a sign.
It’s up to you.
But here are some of the most common signs you’ll see on construction zones.
Sign 1: The white line.
This sign says “Construction Zone” in bold letters.
This means construction is under way.
You may not be able to see the sign.
But you can still hear the construction workers in the background.
The signs above are for a variety of reasons.
Some are for public safety, some are to help property owners with the cost, and some are simply to alert the construction team.
I like the sign above because it says that construction is going on, but that it’s not going to be on your property, so I’m just glad you have this warning.
The “no trespassing” sign.
A construction sign in a construction site.
You may not even notice it’s there.
But the sign is there to keep the construction crews from getting too close to your property.
It says “no trespassers” in a white line across the top of the sign and has a “no damage” sign next to it.
(It’s also not a sign for the building company, so you don’t have to worry about it getting damaged.)
The yellow line.
A construction sign.
This sign is very common on public works projects.
It is often marked with a blue line and a white triangle.
If a construction crew walks up to your front door, they will probably get a few looks, but most will leave.
But when construction is underway, a construction worker can often get a bit too close.
So if you notice the yellow line, you’re probably safe.
But if you don, call ahead to see if your house is going to get damaged.
The green line.
Another construction sign, with a yellow circle and a green triangle.
It indicates that work is in progress.
It also indicates the construction company’s location and whether the work is ongoing.
If you’re looking to build a new home or are planning to move into a rental property, this is the sign for you.
It has a yellow triangle next to the green line and says “move forward.”
The red line.
This is the one that says “under construction.”
If you look carefully, you can sometimes see a construction sign for a construction company on your front lawn.
This signs is not in the public works zone and is not a construction contractor’s sign.
So be aware of it when you’re walking your front yard.
The blue line.
Here, you’ll find a yellow line and another blue circle.
These are usually used to help the construction crew know which side of the road they’re on and where they can get to. 7.
The orange line.
Sometimes called the red line, this line shows the location of the work zone, and you can also see construction equipment in the distance.
You can also spot construction workers if you look closely at your property’s front yard or on your driveway.
The black line.
You’ll also notice that the construction sign next a construction work zone says “closed.”
The white circle.
This circle is used for construction signage and is a warning sign to workers, especially those who are in the area.
The circle indicates the zone, but it doesn’t say anything about who has permission to enter the zone.
If construction is on, it’s probably OK to cross it.
But do not cross the circle unless you are in a safe location.
If it’s closed, you could be trespassing, so watch out.
The pink circle.
If the construction is not underway, this circle will be used to indicate construction is still ongoing.
It tells the workers to expect an interruption of work and to stay out of the zone if it happens.
It doesn’t indicate the exact location of work, but you can tell by looking at it where the work area is. 11.
The large red triangle.
This triangle is used to remind workers that construction work is underway.
It shows the construction zone, as well as the construction work site
