The City of Kerrville is the largest Hill Country destination located in the center of what is known as Texas wine country. As host to a number of destination events including triathlons, food & wine and conventions, the City needed a method to direct traffic in and around the City. As part of a new civic center and downtown revitalization efforts the City developed parking garages to help transition motorists to pedestrians. Kerrville worked with NSP under a design/build agreement to develop a multi-level wayfinding system that focused on generating greater pedestrian interest in their historic downtown. The project was completed (design, planning, TXDOT submittal, fabrication and installation) in less than one year.

The final project includes a total of (74) locations, (40) of which are located in TXDOT right-of-way. There are (5) unique signs designs that address both motorist and pedestrian needs throughout the City of Kerrville.

‘The design component of our wayfinding system matches the rich and historic heritage of Kerrville.’

The City of Kerrville built a new civic center and parking facility as a means to invigorate their historic downtown and further economic development. The wayfinding system was developed around the goal of transitioning vehicular traffic into pedestrian traffic and then getting pedestrians and tourists to the local businesses. National Sign Plazas handled the original designs and the strategic plan using the parking facility and downtown as a destination, worked with TXDOT to have the system approved for use in the State road right-of-way, and then built and installed the entire system as a single phase
