[FHWA Docket No. FHWA-2020-0001]

National Standards for Traffic Control Devices; the Manual on 
Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways; Revision

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), U.S. Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Proposed rule; notice of proposed amendments; correction (NPA).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and 
Highways (MUTCD) is incorporated in FHWA regulations and recognized as 
the national standard for traffic control devices used on all public 
roads. FHWA recently published its NPA and placed supplemental 
documents to the docket for the rulemaking. Two of the supplemental 
documents contained the same drafting error. By this notice FHWA is 
correcting that error and providing public notice of the revised 
documents.

DATES: December 29, 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Kevin Sylvester, Office of 
Transportation Operations, (202) 366-2161, Kevin.Sylvester@dot.gov, or 
Mr. William Winne, Office of the Chief Counsel, (202) 366-1397, 
William.Winne@dot.gov, Federal Highway Administration, 1200 New Jersey 
Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Electronic Access and Filing

document may also be downloaded by accessing the Office of the Federal 
Register's home page at: https://www.federalregister.gov.

Background

    FHWA published its NPA proposing changes to the MUTCD on December 
14, 2020, at 85 FR 80898. FHWA published several supplemental documents 
to the docket for this rulemaking to aid the public review of the 
proposals described in the NPA. Two of those documents, ``MUTCD 11ed 
NPA Text-Mark-up.pdf'' and ``MUTCD 11ed NPA Text-Clean.pdf,'' contained 
a drafting error which suggests that FHWA is making a change to the 
text that was neither intended nor described in the NPA document. The 
phrase ``shall not'' was inadvertently included in a proposed editorial 
deletion in the Standard statement of proposed Section 9A.01. This 
error has been corrected and FHWA has placed the updated version of 
MUTCD Proposed Text.pdf to the docket.

Administrator, Federal Highway Administration.
