Important Note from Richard: I am in the process of completely rebuilding this website and adding the following features:

  • New and improved page layouts
  • All new graphics, including animated sign images
  • Larger linked .gif images, with all layout and color options
  • Improved PDF files
  • Adding signs from the 2009 MUTCD
  • Links to the 2009 MUTCD (Revisions 1 and 2)

And I'm trying to provide all of this while maintaining the simple and easy layout and navigation that this site has provided for over two decades. This will take a while and will be a staged rollout, so your patience is appreciated. Thanks!

On this page, look for the link buttons with light green backgrounds and icons to see new and improved sections of the website.


Note: This is not an official website of the Federal Highway Administration.
