FHWA Issues Interim Approval for the Optional Use of an Alternative Design for the U.S. Bicycle Route (M1-9) Sign
The FHWA has issued an Interim Approval for the optional use of an alternative design for the U.S. Bicycle Route (M1-9) sign. The alternative design was recommended by the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (NCUTCD) and underwent successful human factors testing at the FHWA's Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center. States and local governments may apply for permission to use the alternative design under the terms and conditions of the Interim Approval, and States may request such permission for all jurisdictions in that State. This Interim Approval does not make the use of the alternative design mandatory.
