Interim Approvals Recommended as MUTCD Delay Expected


The expected delay of the next Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) edition has motivated the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (NCUTCD) to recommend changes to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for Interim Approval.

Since the June 2008 meeting of the NCUTCD Council, many MUTCD-recommended changes have received the NCUTCD stamp of approval. However, official implementation of these approved changes remains in limbo pending the official release of the next MUTCD edition.

With the MUTCD production delay expected to drag out without a set timetable, the NCUTCD is pushing for the issuance of Interim Approvals of some of these previously approved changes.
