The Traffic Guide Sign Design Manual has been developed for MnDOT’s Traffic Guide Sign Design Course. This course is intended to enable MnDOT and consultant engineering personnel to acquire basic design skills needed to design traffic guide signs using the SignCAD Software. This two day course is designed for persons who need to acquire guide sign design skills. SignCAD will be used to demonstrate basic sign design elements for as many traffic guide sign examples as time permits.
Descriptions and schedules for roadway signing courses, including the Traffic Guide Sign Design Course, are found on the Roadway Signing Courses website.
