2000 MUTCD with Errata 1 Changes Incorporated, June 2001
This is not the most current version of the MUTCD. The current version is the 2009 Edition with Revision Numbers 1 and 2 incorporated dated May 2012.
Viewing the MUTCD
If you have difficulty viewing the MUTCD sections below (in PDF format), you may need to download and install new software. For best results we recommend Internet Explorer, version 4 or higher, and Adobe Acrobat Reader, version 4.
Printing the MUTCD
The new manual is set up for double-sided, offset printing of over 1100 sheets of paper to be placed in a three-ring binder. The first 5 pages include a spine, title page, cover page, etc. If you are having trouble printing the MUTCD, you may need to adjust settings in "File > Page Setup" menu, in Adobe Acrobat. A high-grade ink-jet or laser printer is recommended for a quality hard copy. If you are still experiencing difficulties after making the suggested adjustments, please submit your problem to Operations Feedback and you will receive a reply.
The PowerPoint presentations which were previously on the MUTCD web site described the proposed changes. Now that the MUTCD has been published, FHWA is updating the PowerPoint slides to discuss the items covered in the final rule. We plan to have the new PowerPoint slides posted on the web site by the end of February.
