Traffic Control Management (MOT)

In the public sector, the most obvious MUTCD users are the State and local transportation planners and traffic engineers who design our roads and locate the traffic control devices that help drivers navigate them safely. There are the public works department employees who must understand how to install and maintain the traffic control devices. The engineers and planners work closely with Federal FHWA Division Office personnel who interpret and clarify MUTCD standards for their State and local partners. The FHWA also conducts extensive materials research, often in cooperation with the private sector designers and developers, to improve the effectiveness and visibility of traffic control devices.
