Traffic Signs Class2 - Copy (2)
On April 27, 2017, David Garrison and Darryl Bledsoe of the Town of Arlington Public Works Department attended a class for Traffic Signs and Pavement Markings. Included in the class was a review of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Some highlights were details for installing signs and needed markings for traffic control as well as usage and placement of the different types of signs for specific areas. A summary of sign and pavement markings retroreflectivity was also covered. This was a very informative class in helping keep the traffic flowing in Arlington with full safety measures implemented.
