FHWA schedules three webinars for proposed MUTCD updates

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has scheduled three webinars through April 1 on topics related to the proposed updates to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD).

The webinars take place at 2 p.m. EDT as follows:

March 18: Introduction and Overview – Covers some of the major changes proposed for the MUTCD and how people can provide comment.

March 25: Pedestrians, Bicycles and Transit – Provides highlights of proposed changes related to traffic control devices for pedestrian, bicycle and transit facilities.

April 1: Urban Traffic Control – Provides highlights of proposed changes related to traffic control devices in urban centers and urbanized communities.

“The Manual has not been revised in more than a decade and during that time we have learned a lot about how to ensure that all roadway users are safe,” acting Federal Highway Administrator Stephanie Pollack said in a statement released with the announcement of the webinars.

“We want to hear from you – whether you manage a transportation agency or are a traffic engineer, urban planner, safety advocate, driver, pedestrian or bicyclist,” Pollack added. “Your input will help shape the future of traffic control on our highway system and this important document for years to come.”

Registration and additional information about the webinars is here. Recordings will be available there after each event.

FHWA is continuing to gather feedback at the Federal Register.
