Looking Beyond the 2009 Edition of the MUTCD: New Flexibilities for the Practitioner

Since the last edition of the Manual on Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) was published in 2009, the Federal Highway Administration has published several key resources intended to help keep the content of the Manual relevant and up to date. This introductory webinar will describe these important tools (including Revisions, Interim Approvals (IAs), Official Interpretations, Experimentations and FAQs), how they can be used, and the “risks” involved in applying them. It will also provide a general overview of existing IAs and a discussion of how IAs are developed. The FHWA experimentation process will be described and the need for research on the application of new traffic control devices will also be promoted. Participants will benefit from a practitioner’s perspective on the application of these important MUTCD related tools.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn about recent flexibilities in the MUTCD provided through revisions, interim approvals, interpretations and FAQs
  • Describe the general content of MUTCD interim approvals and become familiar with practitioner based applications of interim approvals
  • Address practitioner questions on the FHWA experimentation process and describe how this program is being used to evaluate and promote new traffic control devices
