Effective December 9, 2015 California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has made edits, referred to as Revision 1 (Rev 1), to the 2014 California Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (California MUTCD), to provide uniform standards and specifications for all official traffic control devices in California. This action was taken pursuant to the provisions of California Vehicle Code Section 21400 and the recommendations of the California Traffic Control Devices Committee (CTCDC). Caltrans has received a letter to confirm substantial conformance from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) for the California MUTCD 2014, Rev 1.
