MUTCD: Roadway Traffic Control

COURSE NO: C06-012
COURSE PROVIDER: Gregory Taylor, P.E.
MUTCD: Roadway Traffic Control
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course shows how to effectively use the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) for establishing roadway traffic control. The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD) 2009 Edition will be referenced to explain fundamental roadway traffic control. It is the recognized national standard for all traffic control devices installed on any road or bikeway. Any traffic control device design or application contained within it is considered to be in the public domain and available for use.


Nationwide consistency is the goal of the MUTCD by requiring uniform, understandable, and effective devices. This course is intended to serve as guidance and not as an absolute rule. Should there be any discrepancies between the contents of this course and the MUTCD, always follow the MUTCD.


This 6 PDH online course is applicable to traffic or transportation engineers interested in learning how to use the MUTCD more effectively for establishing roadway traffic control. The overall objective is to give engineers and designers an in-depth look at traffic control selection and design principles.
