Those webinars – all held at 2 p.m. ET – occur on the following dates:
- March 18: This webinar provides an overview of the MUTCD revision process, highlights of some of the major changes proposed, and how you can participate in providing comment.
- March 25: This webinar highlights proposed changes related to traffic control devices for pedestrian, bicycle, and transit facilities.
- April 1: This webinar highlights 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,” noted Stephanie Pollack, FHWA’s acting administrator, in a statement.
“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,” she added. “Your input will help shape the future of traffic control on our highway system and this important document for years to come.”
The FHWA – which originally proposed overhauling the MUTCD guide in December 2020 – said the webinars do not replace the public comment process but instead provide insight on its proposed revisions. Feedback on FHWA’s proposed MUTCD changes are due by May 14 via its notice in the Federal Register.
