The FHWA maintains a Division Office in each State and in the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The FHWA staff in these 52 Division Offices are more familiar with individual State issues, and they work closely with State and local highway agencies to resolve local issues of traffic control device selection, installation, and maintenance.

The State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and the local highway agencies, however, are the agencies that own and operate most highways and roads throughout the country. Thus, it is the State DOTs and the local agencies that select, install, and maintain traffic control devices in accordance with the FHWA MUTCD provisions.
