Project Funding Information (PFI) Signs

Sign policy for use of these signs is included in Section 6F.109(CA) for use on projects with estimated contract costs of $750,000 or more and 50 working days or more, or 70 working days minimum when Saturdays or holidays are counted as working days, the Construction Funding Identification (C47 (CA) Series) signs may be used to identify funding sources for a highway project. 

Formats of the sign series are flexible to include federal, state and/or local agency funding sources.  Information on the sign should include type of project, such as:

  • Highway Construction                      
  • Highway Repair
  • Highway Improvement
  • Bridge Construction
  • Bridge Repair
  • Roadside Work


NOTE:
Guidance on this page supersedes the process on the previous Project Information Signs page.

  • Background info about PFI Signs...
    The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) works with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and local partner agencies to inform road users of projects under construction to identify project funding initiatives, such as Proposition 1B bond funding, and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funding projects. Project funding information signs were formerly detailed in the T7 Standard Plan, however, in 2015 updated sign specifications were included in Part 6 – Temporary Traffic Control, Chapter 6F of the California Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (CA MUTCD) with two versions:  C47A(CA) allows local funding partners to emphasize local agency participation in highway projects; and, C47B(CA) conveys the traditional message “Your Tax Dollars AT WORK,” and, both versions include the safety slogan “BE WORK ZONE ALERT.”
