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 surname, as her father worked for the Forest Service.
Approximately 10–15% more compact than its predecessor, the typeface was found by the Pennsylvania Transportation Institute to increase readability by 11%.
