Section 1: OverviewAnchor: #i1002612
There are several types of guide signs used on freeways. These include freeway Direction signs, General Service signs, Recreational and Cultural Interest signs, and Miscellaneous Guide signs. This chapter describes the basic applications of the various types of freeway guide signs and identifies TxDOT design guidelines for some types of freeway guide signs, where design guidelines are provided in a separate TxDOT document.
White legends on green, blue, and brown background signs must be designed using the Clearview font (except route signs). Black legends must not use the Clearview font, but will use the standard FHWA Highway Series lettering (B, C, D, E, E [modified], or F). Sign illustrations in this chapter use the Clearview font for white on green, blue, and brown signs.
