Proposed 11th edition of MUTCD available for preview

Public comments period starts Monday

The first comprehensive update to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD) in more than a decade is now available for preview in the Federal Register.

The document opens for public comment on Monday.

The Notice of Proposed Amendments for the 11th edition of the MUTCD contains more than 600 proposed changes, according to a statement from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

“The proposed updates to the manual smartly envision the future of transportation by considering the preparedness of our nation’s highways for automated vehicles,” FHWA Administrator Nicole R. Nason said in announcing the proposed revisions. “They also renew attention on safety for our most vulnerable road users, including the nation’s highway workers, emergency responders, cyclists, and pedestrians.”

The proposed modifications put forth “proven advancements while remaining flexible to accommodate newer technologies and operational strategies,” according to the FHWA statement.

“This update has been anticipated by our members for months and it’s great that we will soon have the opportunity to review it to see the hundreds of proposed changes it contains,” said ATSSA Vice President of Engagement Nate Smith. “This document is fundamental to the roadway safety infrastructure industry so it is of utmost importance for us to engage and provide our feedback.”​
