The Illinois Section of ITE is holding a webinar event for the benefit of ITE members and guests. The event will be shown at the DuPage County Division of Transportation and 1.5 PDHs will be available to attendees after the webinar.
Light refreshments will be served and networking with fellow transportation professionals is encouraged.
The current (2009) edition of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) outlines compliance dates established by FHWA for certain traffic control device standards. By December 31, 2019, State DOTs, counties, municipalities, and other road owners are urged to meet the requirements. This webinar will focus on meeting two new requirements that were established in 2009:
Section 2B.40 (One way Signs) revised the requirements for the number and locations of One Way signs
Sections 2C.06 through 2C.14 (Horizontal Alignment Warning Signs) revised the requirements regarding the use of various horizontal alignment signs.
The webinar will give a brief overview of what is expected and add clarification. It will also cover some of the commonly asked questions, such as why the requirements were established, whether all One-Way signs and horizontal alignment warning signage will need to be upgraded even if the signs are 'perfectly good', and what the legal issues are if the dates are not met. The webinar will feature presenters from various state and/or local DOTs to showcase the various methods which they have used to meet these compliance dates. Lastly, it will provide the opportunity to ask the panel any questions about specific scenarios which you may be facing.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will have:
Learned what specific sign changes must be made by agencies to meet the December 31, 2019 compliance dates
Learned about methods other states and highway agencies are using to complete these tasks
Received guidance on specific compliance circumstances
