SIGNS AND MARKINGS FOR LOW VOLUME RURAL ROADS
Warrants and guidelines for warning and regulatory signs and markings in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) are evaluated for functional, economical, and aesthetical applicability to low volume rural roads. The research involves classifying the types of low volume rural roads and identifying driver information needs on the various classifications. Supplemental guidelines to the MUTCD based on safety, costs, and aesthetics are developed and validated.
