Every day we travelled into office, school, and university thru the highway. Highways are the main roads that connect one place to another. The main road is used by pedestrian, vehicles, and its use is regulated by law from transportation department. Every road has a road sign at the side or above roads to give the instruction of road users but in Surabaya it has different road sign because it uses bilingual language and different color. This study analyzes road sign in Surabaya city using the aspects of linguistic landscape. Linguistic landscape also has more functions. Signs within the linguistic landscape serve both informational and symbolic functions and include both government and private signs. The data was found in five regions of Surabaya city and one artery road. The data include 36 pictures of road sign. The research method of this analysis is appropriate for quantitative study because surveys, observation and counting the data based on mathematical approach. This study aims the reason of using English language, the purpose, and why those languages are used in the road sign. English – Indonesia language are more dominant in central Surabaya than other region. Because, the center activities of the citizens of Surabaya took place in the downtown area. There are several malls, star hotels, banks, and offices. Especially at JL Tunjungan, there is the Surabaya Civil Registry Office and a historic hotel, the Majapahit hotel.
