NPS Rawlinson Roadway is an old style serif typeface currently used on the United States National Park Service's road signs. It was created by Terminal Design to replace Clarendon. Type designer James Montalbano named the typeface after his wife's last name.[1]

The typeface, which takes up 15% less space than its predecessor, was found by the Pennsylvania Transportation Institute to increase readability by 11%.
