Course Synopsis:

Are you aware that traffic control devices include pavement markings, and that painted stripes are not the only types of pavement markings?

Traffic control devices shall be defined as all signs, signals, markings, and other devices used to regulate, warn, or guide traffic, placed on, over, or adjacent to a street, highway, pedestrianfacility, or bikeway by authority of a public agency having jurisdiction. The need for uniform standards was recognized long ago, and the MUTCD is a result of much research and several editions since 1935 in order to establish and facilitate those uniform standards.  The U.S. Secretary of Transportation has decreed that traffic control devices on al streets and highways open to public travel shall be in substantial conformance with the Standards issued or endorsed by the FHWA.

Markings on highways provide guidance and information for the road user.  Major marking types include pavement and curb markings, object markers, delineators, colored pavements, barricades, channelizing devices and islands. This course offers detailed engineering information for the design and implementation of Pavement Markings applicable to public roads.

Course Objectives:
