The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) is a document issued by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) to specify the standards by which traffic signs, road markings (see lane), and signals are designed, installed, and used. These specifications include the shapes, colors, and fonts used in road markings and signs. In the United States, all traffic control devices must generally conform to these standards. The manual is used by state and local agencies as well as private construction firms to ensure that the traffic control devices they use conform to the national standard. While some state agencies have developed their own set of standards, these must be in substantial conformance with the MUTCD.

According to the FWHA website, in addition to black and white, the following Pantone colors (with RGB equivalents) are to be used on signs:

Brown - 469       (RGB 96,51,17 / Hex #603311) ; Red - 187       (175,30,45 / #af1e2d) ; Yellow - 116       (252,209,22 / #fcd116); Green - 342       (0,107,84 / #006b54) ; Blue - 294       (0,63,135 / #003f87) ; Orange - 152       (221,117,0 / #dd7500) ; Gold - 124       (224,170,15 / #e0aa0f) ; Cream - 468       (226,214,181 / #e2d6b5)

These are the categories of signs which are defined by the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. The categories are one (or two) letter(s), one or two digits, a dash, and usually one or two digits; in rare cases the category ends with three digits. A letter sometimes follows the category but is not used as part of the category.
