Alaska Traffic Manual Supplement


Presented by Jeff Jeffers, P.E. and Lee Rodegerdts, P.E.

About the Presentation:
This workshop will present an overview of the new Alaska Traffic Manual, published in January 2012. The workshop will cover the major changes introduced at the national level between the 2003 and 2009 editions of the federal Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices, followed by the corresponding modifications made within the Alaska Traffic Manual to be specific to Alaska.
