Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices
Use of uniform traffic control devices, including shape, size and color, help reduce crashes and congestion, and improves the efficiency of the system.
Use of the MUTCD is required on public roads by Oregon law.
11th Edition of the MUTCD
The Federal Highway Administration published
a new edition of the MUTCD on December 19, 2023. The Oregon Transportation Commission has until January 2026 to adopt
the new MUTCD for use in Oregon through an update to OAR 734-020-0005
. Until then, the 2009 Edition of the MUTCD is still in effect in Oregon.
ODOT and the Oregon Traffic Control Devices Committee
will be developing the Oregon Supplement to the 11th Edition of the MUTCD during this time. The supplement will adapt the federal edition for use in Oregon.
