Delineator Post

This post is about well…delineator posts.  If you stumbled upon this hopefully you don’t know what one of these is, because I will describe it here.  When trying to describe a delineator post to someone quickly, I tell them it’s like a tall traffic cone.  This is true because it is taller than a traffic cone but false because it’s a lot skinnier and doesn’t have a cone shape – instead it has a ‘post’ shape.

They are used to ‘delineate’ traffic meaning they direct cars based on their layout, basically they create temporary lanes.  Colors can range from orange to white to yellow but the most common are orange.  They average around $20 each which is higher than most would guess.
