The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) is incorporated by reference in 23 CFR part 655, subpart F, approved by the Federal Highway Administration, and recognized as the national standard for traffic control devices used on all public roads. The purpose of this final rule is to revise standards, guidance, options, and supporting information relating to maintaining minimum levels of retroreflectivity for traffic signs on all roads open to public travel. 

MUTCD Marine Highway Signage

A number of States have been approached about erecting signs for the USDOT’s Marine Highway program, administered by MARAD. The Marine Highway system essentially promotes transport of goods via navigable waterways as an alternative to landside highways. Each Marine Highway waterway is designated with a route number that corresponds to the nearest Interstate highway that it roughly approximates as an alternative route between destinations. The route number is preceded by “M-” (e.g., M-95 runs along the East Coast as an alternative to I-95).
