In this course, you’ll learn how to effectively use signs to guide roadway traffic, and thereby reduce your liability exposure.

Traffic signs are the primary communication devices used for informing drivers of regulations, roadway conditions, etc. The goal is to provide drivers with relevant information when they need it - resulting in safer, more efficient roadways with reduced liability risks. However, poor sign management can greatly reduce safety, contribute to roadway incidents, and increase liability exposure.

The objective of this course is to give engineers and designers an in-depth look at the principles to be considered when selecting and designing for traffic control. Upon course completion, you should be familiar with the general design guidelines for traffic signs.

The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD) 2009 Edition will serve as a course reference for fundamental temporary traffic control design principles. The MUTCD is recognized as the national standard for all traffic control devices installed on any street, highway, bikeway, or private road open to public travel. Nationwide consistency is the goal of the MUTCD by requiring uniform, understandable, and effective devices.

The course is not a replacement for the MUTCD, but rather it is intended to help you use the MUTCD more effectively. To that end, the course is intended to serve as guidance and not as an absolute standard or rule. Should there be any discrepancies between the contents of this course and the MUTCD - always follow the MUTCD.
