The U.S. Federal Highway Administration’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Devices (MUTCD) is the gold standard for designing and installing traffic signs, road markings, and signals. But how do roundabouts fit into the MUTCD? TRB is hosting a webinar on Monday, April 13 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM Eastern that will answer this question. Presenters will identify where someone can find the relevant standards, options, and policies related to roundabouts within the Manual. They will also describe the numerous changes and new content that will likely be incorporated into the next version of the MUTCD. This webinar will also discuss how the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (NCUTCD) determines the standards for traffic control.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Roundabouts.

Some registrants will need to pay $105 to attend this webinar. Sign into to view registration information.
