A Traffic Control Plan (TCP) is a document that shows temporary signs, cones, and flaggers to safely direct traffic around your work zone. ‘Traffic’ includes vehicles, bicycles, pedestrians, and mobility devices such as wheelchairs.
Temporary traffic control requirements, devices, and setups can be found in Part 6 of the CA Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).
Part 6 includes temporary traffic controls such as for work zones. Chapter 6H provides typical applications or general setups.
