The Ohio Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (OMUTCD) establishes statewide standards for the design and use of traffic control devices on any street, highway, bikeway or private roads open to public travel in Ohio. The current OMUTCD is the 2012 Edition published January 13, 2012, effective April 12, 2012.
The Ohio Revised Code (Section 4511.09) requires that ODOT adopt a manual for a uniform system of traffic control devices that conforms to the system approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). To this end, ODOT publishes the OMUTCD, which establishes standards for design and use of traffic control devices that conform to the national Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) published by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
Section 4511.11 of the Ohio Revised Code requires that all local authorities in their respective jurisdictions, and owners of private property open to public travel, place and maintain traffic control devices in conformance with the OMUTCD.
