The MUTCD Traffic Sign Inventory and Assessment Program is a new program created by the NJTPA to assist member subregions in complying with a Federal Highway Administration’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) 2009 standard. Specifically, the requirement is for having a sign assessment or management system in place by January 2012 (see MUTCD Section 2A.08 Maintaining Minimum Retroreflectivity and Table I-2 Target Compliance Dates). The MUTCD is the national standard for all traffic control devices on any street or highway open to public travel. This inventory effort will allow NJTPA member subregions to select and implement an appropriate management or assessment method that best matches their needs.
In November 2010, the NJTPA Board of Trustees approved $2 Million in federal STP funds to establish this program. At its May 9, 2011 meeting, the Board approved the funding allocation for the program and each member subregion will receive $133,000 towards this effort.
