Manual Notice: 2017-1

From: Michael A. Chacon, P.E.

Manual: Sign Guidelines and Applications Manual

Effective Date: May 01, 2017



The purpose of this manual is to provide information and internal procedures for the placement and use of various types of signs on state roadways. This manual is not meant to be comprehensive, but rather to provide additional information and procedures specific to Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) operations not covered in the Texas Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (TMUTCD).



The Signs and Markings Manual was originally published in March of 2006 to provide guidance on the proper placement of guide signs, which are discussed in Chapter 7. The manual has been revised to include additional chapters on sign location and installation, sign materials and supports, sign maintenance, regulatory and warning signs, as well as other miscellaneous signs. The original Signs and Markings Manual had a chapter on markings which has since been removed. The manual name has therefore changed from the Signs and Markings Manual to the Sign Guidelines and Applications Manual.
