Roadway Traffic Control I

Roadway Traffic Control I

Author: Gregory Taylor

This course is the first of two in this series that shows how to effectively use the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) for establishing roadway traffic control. Course material will cover Part 1 – Information, Part 2 – Signs, and Part 3 – Markings. The overall objective of this 3-hour course is to give engineers and designers an in-depth look at traffic control selection and design principles.

The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD) 2009 Edition will be referenced to explain fundamental roadway traffic control. It is the recognized national standard for all traffic control devices installed on any road or bikeway. Any traffic control device design or application contained within it is considered to be in the public domain and available for use.

Nationwide consistency is the goal of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices by requiring uniform, understandable, and effective devices. This course is intended to serve as guidance and not as an absolute rule. It was written to help you learn to use the MUTCD more effectively for establishing roadway traffic control. Should there be any discrepancies between the contents of this course and the MUTCD – always follow the MUTCD.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 3 PDH credits
