The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) posted the final rule regarding pavement marking retroreflectivity in today’s Federal Register.
The posting states: “The purpose of this final rule is to update the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) to provide standards, guidance, options, and supporting information relating to maintaining minimum levels of retroreflectivity for pavement markings. The MUTCD is incorporated in FHWA regulations and recognized as the national standard for traffic control devices used on all streets, highways, bikeways, and private roads open to public travel.”
The rule notes that it is effective on Sept. 6.
Two points of contact are provided by FHWA for anyone seeking further information on the rule: Cathy Satterfield, Office of Safety, 202 309-0465, email@example.com and William Winne, Office of the Chief Counsel, 202 366-1397, firstname.lastname@example.org.
