The NCUTCD Executive Board has tasked the Research Committee to develop a practitioner-based journal for Traffic Control Devices. It is intended to showcase research and evaluations from both researchers and practitioners who are investigating practical issues related to the MUTCD. It is not intended to be an academic journal as there are other forums for such papers. Instead, the intent would be that manuscripts published in the journal will have direct recommendations for consideration in the manual.
The Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) has published the 6th edition of the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada. You can learn more about the new edition on their website. Cost of the new manual is $750 (Canadian dollars) for individuals who are not TAC members, which is a little over $600 in US currency at today’s exchange rate.
Man thanks to Scott Wainwright for alerting us to the availability of this new edition.
All of the NCUTCD docket submissions are now posted on the docket. The docket number for each chapter is listed in the attached file along with a link to that submission on the docket. A quick look at the list shows that a few of our submissions have a docket number that is approaching 13,000, which gives you a sense of how many submissions there were to the docket. The docket is currently closed to additional submissions.
Once again, I want to thank everyone for their hard work to prepare the comments. I also want to thank the many members who I see have submitted their own personal comments to the docket.
