Explanation:
Again, I think we would need more context. Signaling I assume is the correct US spelling???? If for UK, you need double 'L'

Best of the answers given and many thanks. Personally, I still prefer traffic control. However, the customer selected signalization. I found one reference to the use of this term in similar context in a construction project in Pennsylvania.
