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 either as one complete PDF document, or by individual chapters (see menu below).
Please view Traffic Engineering and Operations Bulletin 23-01 for a description of revisions to the 2024 manual.
Please see the Traffic Engineering and Operation Bulletin page for past TEM Manual Bulletins.
