A traffic control provider can claim it meets critical safety and performance standards. But how does a potential client really know that the claims have substance? One of the best ways is to verify that the provider meets certain established standards. One of the most reliable sets of standards has been set forth by the Federal Highway Administration with its Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices, otherwise known as MUTCD. Roadway Construction Service is proud to say it is a MUTCD compliant company. This means, we meet all the critical requirements set forth by Federal Highway Administration in its iron-clad manual.

Let’s take a closer look at what it means to be a MUTCD compliant company. By earning this honor, Roadway Construction Service satisfies specific criteria delineated in the manual. At its core, the document sets forth a set of standards that traffic control managers must adhere to. The standards pertain to the installation and maintenance of traffic control devices on all public streets, highways, bikeways, and private roads. Painstakingly developed, the manual has been authorized by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) under 23 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 655, Subpart F. So, yeah, the document has some important backing by some important people.
Traffic Control Signs
One area in which the MUTCD has had a profound impact is in the development of traffic control signs. As a matter of course, Roadway Construction Services utilizes a MUTCD compliant sign chart while involved with a traffic control project. When we select signage for a traffic control project, we typically refer to this chart for guidance. No doubt, motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are very familiar with much of the signage. STOP, speed limit, and no left turn are just some examples of what every road traveler has seen, usually many times a day. A major contributor to this important messaging system is the MUTCD.
Our strict compliance to the CA MUTCD sign chart (PDF Opens IN New Window) document is one reason we routinely provide expert traffic management. So how does this excellence manifest itself on a project? One of the most obvious examples is our use of traffic control barriers. Utilizing the MUTCD industry guides for traffic control, we consistently develop rock-solid plans for the deployment of road barricades. These deployments are characterized by precision and impeccable adherence to the highest safety standards. Whether you require traffic sign rental, k rail rental, or any other solution, you can be confident in getting the very best solution with Roadway Construction Service.
Traffic Control Flaggers
The MUTCD standards we adhere to also apply to field personnel. Consider our team of flaggers. Every traffic control flagger on our squad has been trained to meet these critical standards. The results are indisputable. Once deployed, our flaggers exhibit uncommon excellence in all aspects of their job. As communicators and protectors, they’re unequalled.
Clearly, MUTCD compliance is a big contributor to our outstanding record in the field of road traffic control. When combined with our team’s skill, experience, and dedication, the manual’s high standards have helped advance planning and performance to the highest levels. For Roadway Construction Service, it all adds up to a long list of very satisfied clients.
