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 the 2003 Edition of the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and the 2004 MUTCD Standard Highway Signs Manual (SHS), the FHWA Pavement Markings and Symbol Series font collection is now available in TrueType, PostScript and OpenType formats. Featuring the complete pavement alphabet and associated markings as well as all of the symbols contained in the symbol sets RA, RG, RL, RM, RS and RW in convenient and system wide accessible font formats.

The Pavement Markings and Symbol Series fonts are included with purchase of any complete FHWA Series font collection and with the purchase of any of the available MUTCD Digital Editions.
