Lewisville City Council gave the go-ahead Nov. 15 to award a bid to a company to create wayfinding signs and park signs for Garden Ridge Trail and Railroad Park.

Lewisville-based SSC Signs & Lighting was selected after submitting the lowest responsive bid of $262,461, according to a staff memo. The city will tap into its capital improvement program to fund the project.

The signs are part of a larger Wayfinding and Park Signage Master Plan approved in April 2020. Parks and recreation department staff worked with design consultant FD2S on the details.

“The purpose of the plan is to orient park and trail users, support accessibility, provide knowledge to the community about our parks and trails, and create a brand for the city’s park system,” according to the memo.

Plans reviewed with City Council in March included the location of signs, the color palette and signage schedule, according to the memo.


A timeline for the installation of the signage still has to be worked out, according to the memo.
