Proposed rule; notice of proposed amendments; correction (NPA).
The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUTCD) is incorporated in FHWA regulations and recognized as the national standard for traffic control devices used on all public roads. FHWA recently published its NPA and placed supplemental documents to the docket for the rulemaking. Two of the supplemental documents contained the same drafting error. By this notice FHWA is correcting that error and providing public notice of the revised documents.

FHWA published its NPA proposing changes to the MUTCD on December 14, 2020, at 85 FR 80898. FHWA published several supplemental documents to the docket for this rulemaking to aid the public review of the proposals described in the NPA. Two of those documents, “MUTCD 11ed NPA Text-Mark-up.pdf” and “MUTCD 11ed NPA Text-Clean.pdf,” contained a drafting error which suggests that FHWA is making a change to the text that was neither intended nor described in the NPA document. The phrase “shall not” was inadvertently included in a proposed editorial deletion in the Standard statement of proposed Section 9A.01. This error has been corrected and FHWA has placed the updated version of MUTCD Proposed Text.pdf to the docket.
