Temporary Traffic Control:
Guidelines for Traffic Control Plan Preparation

The development of a workable Traffic Control Plan in Montgomery County is based on the most recent edition of Part 6 of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) for Streets and Highways. A working knowledge of this document is critical to developing a Traffic Control Plan that will provide safety for motorists as well as adequate space to complete the proposed work. Overall, a site specific Traffic Control Plan is required for most work within County right-of-way.

Our Guidelines for Traffic Control Plan Preparation were updated in July 2015 and provide additional requirements, other than the MUTCD, specific to developing workable Traffic Control Plans in Montgomery County.

Review Process 
Two sets of the Traffic Control Plan and one set of the construction site plans must be submitted to:
