Strategy

Main & Bay Settlement Entrance signs target local traffic to:
  • Advertise major institutional events and public services to local traffic
  • Inform of institutional closures for legal holidays or planned campus road closures­­­
  • Welcome campus visitors for major events
Highway WI-57 sign will be treated as a small billboard to target regional traffic to:
  • Advertise campaign messages
  • Advertise major institutional events
Major institutional events are defined by
  • Broad appeal to the general public
  • 150+ expected attendance
  • Cross-campus involvement
  • University sponsored
Public Services
University-owned Auxiliaries
  • Kress Center
  • Shorewood Golf
  • Weidner Center

Procedures

  • Only UW-Green Bay entities may request message placement
  • Submissions must be made at least two weeks prior to the desired placement date
  • If design services are needed, an additional two weeks are required
  • Maximum run-time is two weeks (unless otherwise determined by M/UC)
  • M/UC has the authority to edit content for viewing speed/distance restrictions
  • Institutional priority events and messages may override programed messages at the discretion of M/UC
 

Content Guidelines

Priority will be given to:
  • University-wide interests or concerns
  • Messages that engage target recruitment audiences
  • UW-Green Bay auxiliaries that rely on local public patronage or participation
To be considered for posting, submissions must meet the following criteria:
  • Be related to goods, services and events available on our physical location

Message Visibility

The following table shows WDOT traffic count data near the signs (interactive map). Traffic counts are reported as the number of vehicles expected to pass a given location on an average day of the year. The sign provider estimates a 3- to 4-second viewing window for the height and speed of the signs. State regulation has a 6-second minimum rotation time for roadside digital messages.
