Signs and Pavement Markings

Description

Local agencies are responsible for providing clear, informative traffic control devices and markings for public road travelers (specified in the Code of Iowa and the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices). Consequently, local agency staff need to be aware of all current recommendations and practices to perform their traffic control duties properly. The Iowa LTAP and Safety Circuit Rider have developed several workshops to provide needed training to keep local agencies up to date.
