FHWA seeks input on changes to MUTCD

The USA’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has submitted a request for comments on a possible change that would split the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) into two volumes. The request comes in as part of an FHWA initiative to simplify and streamline the MUTCD. The request for comments explores the idea of putting materials “deemed critical to traffic control device design, application, or traffic safety subject to rulemaking” in one document, while creating a separate document that would contain supplemental application information that would not be subject to rulemaking.

The FHWA will accept comments on the issue for 60 days, in order to allow stakeholders to discuss formats for a restructured MUTCD and also provide descriptions and examples of the kinds of materials that could be moved from the MUTCD to a separate supplemental piece. The agency seeks input on matters specifically related to the MUTCD, but it welcomes all comments and input on any part of the notification, particularly those from manufacturers and developers of traffic control equipment.

The MUTCD is published through a partnership between the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the FHWA, the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA), and the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE). The request for comments is available by clicking here
