Temporary Traffic Control – Layout Selection by Maintenance Activity

The intent of this document is to help local agencies identify the appropriate work zone layout based on the maintenance activity that will be performed. This document focuses on low volume roads only and includes both a rural and urban guide that are intended to be used as supplemental guidance to the Temporary Traffic Control Work Zone Layouts Field Manual (dated January 2014). The information presented here does not replace or override anything within the field manual. Agencies must follow the standards and guidance contained in the Minnesota Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MN MUTCD), including the Field Manual. This document also includes a copy of a letter that was written and submitted to the MUTCD Committee in April 2016, requesting changes for low volume roadways. A summary of training opportunities is included as well. Printing Instructions for Supplemental Guides: The supplemental guides are formatted to be printed as a booklet. The printed document is the same size as the field manual so that it can be stored within the book. In order for it to print properly, use these printing settings: Landscape; 2-sided, flip on the short side (if you flip on long side ½ of the pages will be upside down); Color (preferred, but optional). Once printed, fold the entire stack of paper in half to create a booklet. Staple the seam, if available.
