Traffic Control Manual for Work on Roadways

(1999 Consolidated Office Edition - PDF)


972A_FG Cover.jpgThis edition of the Traffic Control Manual for Work on Roadways was developed by a Committee for Traffic Control on Construction and Maintenance Projects which was organized by the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation.

The purpose of the Committee was to review and update current traffic control standards on all types of projects. The review focused on activity involving short duration, long duration and freeway conditions. The duties, responsibilities and certification of flagpersons was also reviewed by a separate commitee. The traffic control standards are organized in a way that non-Ministry organizations such as utility companies and municpalities can readily use them.

Printed versions of the 1999 Field Edition and printed, colour versions of this manual can be purchased from the Ministry of Management Services Publications Index. (The Field Edition is available in printed format only).
