Since the January meetings, the NCUTCD technical committees have been busy developing draft docket comments.  As these are prepared, they are being shared with and voted upon by the NCUTCD Council.  Currently, the Council is voting by email on Chapter 8E and reviewing portions of Chapter 2A prior to email voting next week.  As docket comments are developed, we will post those on the FHWA docket and then on our website.  To reduce the total number of NCUTCD docket comments, we may delay posting of some comments until entire chapters have been addressed by Council.

On January 8, the FHWA made a presentation to NCUTCD  members summarizing some of the key changes in the MUTCD NPA.  FHWA did not share the slides from the presentation and they are not available at this time for distribution.  FHWA has stated that they intend to make additional improvements and refinements to the presentation and hope to make it available to the public at some point in the future. We will share information about its availability on this News page if/when it become available.

If you want to make a change to the sessions/meetings that you registered to attend, go to your registration confirmation e-mail and click on the “View your registration” link near the bottom. That should take you to your registration on the Cvent website, where you can select other sessions/meetings. If attending a different technical committee than one in which you’re already a member of or selected, send a short note to that committee chair saying you plan to attend so you’re not in the waiting room all day. Links to TC chair e-mails can be seen at https://ncutcd.org/technical-committees/.
