You don't say what shape your traffic sign is.

e.g.

a stop sign is a regular octogaon, yours can't be that

a yield sign is an equilateral triangle, not yours

etc.

however, since you mention only length and width, let's assume a rectangle.

2(w+(w+15)) = 150

4w + 30 = 150

w = 30

the sign is 30x45
