This 2.5-hour workshop teaches you how to implement a successful sign program at the local level. The training uses practical exercises and resources, such as the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and state guidelines, to provide a firm foundation in the purpose and requirements for sign usage, installation, and maintenance.

By the end of the training session, you will be able to:

  • Describe the role, features, and urgency of repair for four sign types.
  • Explain state and local requirements for choosing sign materials including face sheeting, backing, and supports.
  • Apply MUTCD guidance as well as Nevada Standard Plans and Specifications to selected scenarios.
  • Describe the six elements of a sign management system.

The course follows the structure of FHWA Maintenance of Signs and Sign Supports: A Guide for Local Highway and Street Maintenance Personnel.
