FHWA Font Overview

Pricing Information

 


The U.S. Department of Transportation Standard Alphabets for Highway Signs and Pavement Markings reference guide has remained the only standardized source for the development and application of text for highway signs and pavement markings since its initial publication. Many technological innovations since then have changed the way in which highway road signs are created, most notably through the use of computer hardware and software programs. While this has automated the creation of highway road signs, many non-standard or incomplete electronic typeface designs for highway road sign development have emerged. The FHWA Series fonts were developed to address the specific issues relating to highway typeface design by creating a complete, standardized set of typefaces to facilitate the uniform application of text for road sign design throughout the United States.

Designed for use with pre-Millennium editions Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), the FHWA Legacy Edition font collection is now available in TrueType, PostScript and OpenType formats. The FHWA Legacy Edition font collection features the basic character set as outlined in the MUTCD SHS Standard Alphabets for Highway Signs (1966 & 1977 respectively). For current FHWA Typeface collections, please select from either the FHWA Series 2000 Standard Edition or the FHWA 2000EX Expanded Edition fonts located in the product menu.

The collection includes series B, C, D, E, E(m), and F.

The FHWA 1966 Legacy Edition fonts are English units and the FHWA 1977 Legacy Edition fonts are Metric.
