Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices Refresher & Updates class!
This class will provide a refresher to the 2009 Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) as well as the Massachusetts Amendments to the MUTCD. You will review pertinent MUTCD sign standards and guidelines, as well as introduce sign management methods municipalities can adopt to meet FHWA requirements for sign standards, including retro reflectivity, which plays a critical role in providing adequate nighttime visibility of traffic signs to motorists. In addition, the workshop will provide information and guidance relative to the recently passed Municipal Modernization Bill regarding changes to Speed Limit Regulations under Chapter 90, Sections 17 and 18. This class will review MassDOT’s requirements for local adoption of these statutes with a goal of creating uniform implementation standards that will optimize effectiveness statewide. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the 2009 MUTCD and information about Speed Limit Regulations that you should know to bring your city or town into compliance with FHWA and MassDOT mandates.
