OTCDC Call for MUTCD Reviewers
It is anticipated that an update to the MUTCD will be available for review this spring. In the past, ODOT has organized review teams to focus on individual parts (Signs, Markings, Signals, etc.). Each part’s review will be facilitated by an ODOT Traffic-Roadway Section staffer. They will coordinate review and bring a proposed list of comments for each part to the Oregon Traffic Control Devices Committee (OTCDC) for consideration. These comments will be submitted to FHWA on behalf of ODOT. If you would like to help with the review one of the individual parts, please review the list below and contact Eric Leaming (contact info below). The list is subject to change and assumes FHWA will be keeping the current 9-part structure.
Please contact Eric directly at Eric.S.LEAMING@odot.state.or.us by May 15th and let him know you would like to help review the MUTCD and which specific part (1-9) you are interested in.
