The main purpose of this Low Volume Rural Road (LVR) Handbook is to assist the local government officials in providing traffic control and guidance for persons driving on LVR. The suggested practices in the LVR Handbook are in accordance with the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, 2003 Edition (MUTCD 2003)and, in some cases, address more specifically the application of MUTCD 2003 to LVR. This handbook also includes background information on the characteristics of LVR. Through to use of this background information, local governments should be able to better understand the problems of LVR and their users, and can therefore, provide a safer roadway. In order to increase uniformity nationwide, the MUTCD 2003 includes guidance, standards, or warrants for most types of traffic control devices. This LVR Handbook does not address all situation; however, it has been developed to provide guidance for its users.
