Manual on Uniform Traffic Studies

Picture of a Florida Roadway
The purpose of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Studies (MUTS) is to establish minimum standards for conducting traffic engineering studies on roads under the jurisdiction of the Department of Transportation. In addition, local governmental traffic engineering agencies are recommended and encouraged to use the MUTS as a guideline in conducting studies within their area of responsibility.

The MUTS is available in electronic format only. If you are interested in receiving an email update when approved changes have been made, please sign up to receive E-updates through the Contact Mailer. Once registered, click on the Manual on Uniform Traffic Studies under Traffic Engineering.

The 2016 MUTS was updated to incorporate guidance from the 2009 MUTCD, 2010 Highway Capacity Manual, 2010 Highway Safety Manual (HSM), the 2010 ITE Manual of Transportation Engineering Studies, and the 2012 FHWA Lighting Handbook. The main changes to the manual include the following: Chapter 5 was rewritten to incorporate HSM procedures on arterials; Chapter 10: Pedestrian Critical Gap Study was merged into Chapter 8: Gap Studies; Chapter 14 was rewritten to incorporate FHWA Lighting Handbook and HSM procedures; Roundabout guidance was moved to the Florida Intersection Design Guide; and electronic forms were developed and updated for applicable chapters.
