Are you aware that California recently adopted a new CA MUTCD standard and it affects how you do your daily work in transportation?
Are you aware that California has adopted another updated version of the MUTCD in early 2012, which further updates or changes the State's traffic control requirements?
Are you aware of your company or public agency's requirements to follow this document related to transportation projects?
Are you wondering how the prior Traffic Manual, the Federal MUTCD adopted in 2009, and California Supplement to the MUTCD all relate to each other and to your work?
Do you know the status of some of the more significant changes to the MUTCD, such as signal timing parameters, pedestrian traffic controls, traffic signs, and speed zones apply?
Would you like to find out how other California practitioners are applying these new standards and guidelines successfully? Would you like to benefit from their real-world, transportation experience in both the public and private sides of the industry, and be able to apply their "lessons learned" to your projects spanning traffic control devices, signage, traffic signals, school zones, pavement markings, and the latest requirements and guidance for these?
Do you want to hear about some of the changes that have been approved for 2012?

If so, you will want to attend this important workshop, which emphasizes application areas of the new CA MUTCD.

Learn where your prior California Supplement/Traffic Manual applications still apply or have become outdated. Fully understand where and how California practice differs from Federal practice to be in compliance. Pick-up wide-ranging good practices in applying these standards to new and existing transportation facilities in California.

The workshop is a combination of presentations by experts, discussion, and Q&A, so whether you are a seasoned practioner or completely new to the field, bring your issues and experience to further your knowledge.
