Main Street & US 27













MUTCD Warrant Analysis

  • MUTCD - Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices

    • Adopted by the Department in compliance with Chapter 316.0745 of the Florida Statutes. The MUTCD is the basic guide for traffic signals.






MUTCD Warrant Analysis

  • “A traffic control signal should not be installed unless an engineering study indicates that installing a traffic control signal will improve the overall safety ond/or operation of the intersection.” -From the MUTCD

  • “Warrants should be viewed as guidelines, not as absolute values. Satisfaction of a warrant is not a guarantee that the device is needed. Because these are minimum requirements, satisfaction of a warrant is not necessarily justification or a mandate for a traffic signal.” - Florida MUTS (Manual on Uniform Traffic Studies)

  • “Engineering judgement should be exercised in making the final determination.” - Florida MUTS
