U.S. Transportation Secretary Slater Announces Release of Millennium Edition of Manual on Uniform Traffic Control DevicesAbstract:
U.S. Transportation Secretary Rodney E. Slater today announced the release of the millennium edition of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), the first full revision of the manual in 22 years. The MUTCD, which was first published in 1935, provides standards and guidelines for traffic control devices such as signs, signals, markings and devices placed on, over or adjacent to a street or a highway by authority of a public body that has jurisdiction to regulate, warn or guide traffic. Uniform traffic control devices help ensure highway safety by providing for the orderly and predictable movement of all traffic, motorized and non-motorized, throughout the nation. The MUTCD will, for the first time, be available electronically. Users can obtain the new edition via the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) website at: https://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/.
