The Manual de Rotulación para las Vías Públicas de Puerto Rico (Spanish for "Sign Manual for the Public Roads of Puerto Rico") is Puerto Rico's supplement to the MUTCD, the standard for road signs, signals, and markings in the United States. It is developed by the Puerto Rico Highways and Transportation Authority (PRHTA) "in substantial conformance to" the national MUTCD developed by the Federal Highway Administration.
The sign manual contains design specifications for road signs, complementing the national Standard Highway Signs and Markings document. The latest edition of the sign manual was published in 2020 (as of April 2022).
Usage in OpenStreetMap
Each standard sign or plaque in the sign manual is assigned an alphanumeric designation and organized by series. A sign designation follows the same format as in the national MUTCD and SHSD; however, the sign designation for a state-specific sign is indicated by a "(PR)" after the sign number. This suffix is omitted from the traffic_sign=* value because it is usually redundant to the "US:PR" namespace, with a few exceptions.
|Regulatory||Weight Limits||Non-Emergency Vehicle Weight Limit||Single Axle and Tandem||(Not a plaque)||(Normal)|
Unlike in the national standard, the orientation is abbreviated according to Spanish: "I" for left (izquierda) and "D" for right (derecha).
