The City of Anacortes receives numerous requests from citizens for various traffic concerns. The city reviews these requests and makes a determination based on agency policies and the Revised Code of Washington State (RCW or State Law).
The RCW requires the city to follow the national guidelines outlined in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Traffic control devices include signal lights, traffic signs, pavement markings, traffic circles, roundabouts, and other means of organizing traffic. The MUTCD covers all aspects of the placement, construction and maintenance of every form of approved traffic control.
