Founding

Superior Traffic Control, LLC (STC) was founded in 1998 by President, Rebecca Wood in Memphis, TN. Rebecca Wood and husband Brian Wood (Vice President) saw a need for a company that could provide traffic control services that were reliable, efficient, and of the highest quality. With their combined industry knowledge and determination, the Woods soon expanded and moved their operation out of their family home and into an office/warehouse located in Cordova, TN. With the addition of key employees, such as Don Taylor, Garin Swain, and Sam Jones, the company began to earn the trust and respect of many prime contractors in West Tennessee, Eastern Arkansas, and Northern Mississippi.


Expansion

In 2006, the Superior Traffic Control, LLC team made a strategic move and expanded to Middle Tennessee, eventually opening a permanent office in Christiana, TN. Steve Harrelson was hired to run the office and was soon joined by Robby Wood and Lyndsey Wood. Jay Blumenstock was hired in 2008 to oversee an expansion to East Tennessee, and by 2010, the company had established branches in East Tennessee and Chattanooga.


Incorporating New Technology

Along with physical expansion, the management team has also invested in new technologies throughout Superior Traffic Control’s history. As an example, the management team began to install GPS tracking systems in all company vehicles in 2008. This enabled managers to track the progress of crews and ensure the proper and timely service of job sites.

In 2010, Superior Traffic Control, LLC was the first private contractor to deploy the innovative Vulcan Barrier Rail system from Energy Absorption Systems in the United States. The device provides a positive protection barrier between the traveling public and construction work zones. Through its design and fabrication using steel components, the Vulcan Barrier is more portable and easier to haul in comparison to traditional concrete rail. The rail also provides maximum protection for passengers while remaining cost effective.

Another breakthrough was implemented in 2014 when Superior Traffic Control, LLC invested in Smart Work Zone System technology by Ver-mac and was the first to deploy the equipment in Tennessee. The Smart Work Zone System uses radar technology and traffic control equipment to create dynamic, automatic, and real-time communication between work zones and the traveling public.


New Headquarters and the Company Today

To date, Superior Traffic Control, LLC has grown into a well-respected industry leader and effectively expanded its reach to serve all customers in the state of Tennessee as well as in Georgia, Mississippi, and Arkansas while investing in more effective products and innovating its management and service practices. With growth in many areas came a demand for a centrally located corporate office. In January of 2016, Brian and Rebecca Wood relocated the executive offices of Superior Traffic Control, LLC to its new corporate headquarters in Christiana, TN.

As a company that prides itself on its dedicated employees, we cannot thank our team members enough for being a part of our history and enabling our growth. Additionally, the opportunity to serve our community would not be possible without the great state of Tennessee, the surrounding regions, and all of our customers. We thank you for your loyal support and trust throughout our company’s history.
