Updating the MUTCD: Balancing Uniformity and Flexibility

Updating the MUTCD: Balancing Uniformity and Flexibility

Read Time: 5 minutes
Published by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD) defines the standards of road markings, traffic signals and highway signs across the United States—including public wayfinding and placemaking signage. Currently, the FHWA is updating the manual’s 2009 edition with proposed amendments to the Community Wayfinding section. In response, SEGD’s “Community Wayfinding Signage Working Group” is helping to ensure that the proposed changes clarify the current regulations and help support the work of designers for their clients.
