For those interested primarily just in that portion of the
Ohio Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (OMUTCD) that deals with Temporary Traffic Control, Parts 1 (General), 5 (Low-Volume Roads), and 6 (Temporary Traffic Control) of the OMUTCD have also been reprinted together in a separate publication titled the Temporary Traffic Control Manual. This separate publication is also often referred to as the "orange book" because of its orange cover.
The Ohio Revised Code (Section 4511.09) requires ODOT to 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 Ohio Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (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). The TTCM is simply a reprint of portions of the OMUTCD.
Section 4511.11 of the Ohio Revised Code requires that all owners of private roads open to public travel and local authorities in their respective jurisdictions place and maintain traffic control devices in conformance with the OMUTCD.
