Looking Forward: Advancing New and Emerging Traffic Control Devices

Observe the recording of this facilitated discussion session to learn more about new and emerging traffic control devices (TCDs) and their potential inclusion in future updates to the MUTCD. Listen to local jurisdictions’ experiences with the introduction of new or emerging TCD applications including real world examples that examine the devices' benefits, constraints, and costs associated with application. Also, learn more about current TCD research needs and the process employed to develop TCD research statements through the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. During the live event, participants were encouraged to share their experiences with new or emerging TCDs through a moderated discussion.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify examples of new and emerging TCD issues facing agencies today and identify tools needed to address these concerns
  • Understand the FHWA experimentation program, the research requirements to support Interim Approvals and an agency's role in providing data to support this process
  • Understand the role that research plays in implementing effective TCD practices
  • Encourage collaboration or resource-sharing among those stakeholders to obtain data needed to support research requests

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

Keeping Pedestrians + Bicycles Safe: New MUTCD Provisions

Perhaps no area of transportation engineering design has progressed as much since the publication of the 2009 Edition of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD) than that of bicycle and pedestrian facilities. While the 2009 MUTCD addresses some of these emerging designs, such as buffered bike lanes and bike lane extensions, it is silent on other new developments in design since that time. This webinar will highlight the Interim Approvals affecting bicycle and pedestrian facilities since the 2009 MUTCD and discuss how they can be implemented. Interpretations will also be reviewed and we will address some of the Frequently Asked Questions regarding bicycle and pedestrian facility design.

Learning Objectives:
  • Review the 2009 MUTCD content for bicycle and pedestrian facilities - what is and is not included.
  • Learn about Interim Approvals released since the publication of the 2009 MUTCD
  • Address questions about implementation of innovative pedestrian and bicycle facility designs.
