As of November 2014, the California Department of Transportation replaced the Caltrans Traffic Manual with the 2014 California Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices. Part 6 of the 2014 MUTCD covers temporary Traffic Controls -- and BNi Building News has assembled all of the essential figures and illustrations from Part 6 into a convenient, pocket-sized guide that can be easily referenced in construction and maintenance work zones.

This pocket guide covers every aspect of temporary traffic controls on state and county highways, including:

  • Tapers
  • Diversions and detours
  • Hand signaling controls
  • Barricades
  • Lighting devices
  • Sign placement

This new 2016 Field Guide is packed with clear illustrations and it is clearly indexed to guide you to the information you need quickly. You'll see what signs to use, where to place them, the size of buffer zones, channelizer and barricade placement, plus the position of warning flashers and other devices. Nothing is left to chance.

It also includes dozens of pages of full-color illustrations detailing:

  • Lane closures
  • Pedestrian detours
  • Blasting operations
  • Shoulder work
  • And much more!

Don't try hauling around a heavy 320-page manual on the jobsite! Get full access to the temporary traffic control graphics from the California MUTCD anywhere you go. What's more, a companion website lets you instantly search for and download any accompanying commentary from the California MUTCD directly to your PC, tablet, or hand-held device.
