Permit requirements to install/erect temporary traffic control warning signs and other temporary traffic control devices along roadways
The Texas MUTCD (as in the federal MUTCD) requires that “TTC plans and devices shall be the responsibility of the authority of a public body or official having jurisdiction for guiding road users.” Consequently, on Texas roadways, utilities and contractors are usually required to apply to their TxDOT district or area office for permission to place traffic control devices on state facilities. Traffic control plans are normally required by the districts, but may vary from detailed drawings to State Traffic Control Standards or figures from the TMUTCD. The process of approving these plans is completed within the district, where personnel are most familiar with the local roadways. These processes and requirements may vary from district to district.
