Course Synopsis:

When the normal function of the roadway is suspended, TTC (Temporary Traffic Control) planning provides for the continuity of the movement of motor vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic; transit operations; and access to property and utilities.  The primary function of a TTCC is to provide for the reasonably safe and efficient movement of road users through or around TTC zones while reasonably protecting workers, responders to traffic incidents, and equipment.

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 all streets and highways open to public travel shall be in substantial conformance with the Standards issued or endorsed by the FHWA.

This course offers general and specific criteria for Temporary Traffic Control for engineers providing traffic control design, installation, construction, and inspection services.
