A color chart for all the traffic signs indicates acceptable colors no each sign. It consists of, with the exception of Temporary signs, design criteria and location requirements for all traffic signs. It consists of standard temporary sign drawings and their application in the work zones. Standard road line paints, road markings and delineators are identified together with guides on their applications. The specifications in this manual are recommended to be used for all new signs and for all replacements of existing signs which have outlived their usefulness.

These mobile sign displays may be mounted on a regular maintenance vehicle. The teaffic shall be warrant special attention.

In other words, temporary signs sign. The signs shall be so placed that road users will, have adequate timer for response. As a general rule signs shall be located on the left-hand side of the highway. Where special emphasis is deemed necessary, dual installations may be made which consist of duplicate signs opposite each other on the left and right sides of the roadway, respectively.

It is also permissible to mount appropriate signs on barricades. Temporary signs should be mounted on portable supports that are suitable for temporary conditions.

All such installations should be so constructed to yield upon impact and to minimize hazards to motorists. For maximum mobility on certain types of maintenance operations, a large sign may be effectively mounted on a vehi- cle stationed in advance of the work or mov- ing along with it. If no lane or shoulder closure is involved, the transition area will not be used. In this Drivers will not make a distinction between chapter, each of the “.
