The purpose of the FDOT Traffic Engineering Manual (TEM) is to provide traffic engineering standards and guidelines to be used on the State Highway System. The manual covers the process whereby standards and guidelines are adopted, as well as chapters devoted to highway signs, traffic signals, markings, and specialized operational topics. 

The TEM is available in electronic format only. If you are interested in receiving an email update when new bulletins or an update is issued, please sign up to receive E-updates through the Contact Mailer. Once registered, click on the Traffic Engineering Manual under Publications.

The Traffic Engineering Manual is available in one PDF document (link below) where the entire manual or each section can easily be viewed and/or printed.
