MARCH 2023

WELCOME

The Kansas Association for Uniform Traffic Control (KAUTC) is an organization formed in 1973. It is comprised of a diverse group of members including: city, state, county and federal traffic engineers/ technicians, consultants, education, law enforcement and traffic related vendors.

 

KAUTC was conceived in 1972 when a group of concerned professionals met to discuss how the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices should be placed into operation. The group called themselves the Urban Area Traffic Engineer organization. Their primary purpose was to promote uniformity among traffic engineers in the state of Kansas. In 1973, the organization adopted a constitution and chose a new name, the Kansas Association for Uniform Traffic Control (KAUTC). Since then, KAUTC has grown in membership from 17 members to more than 150 members.

 

Today, KAUTC continues the promotion of uniformity as the transportation industry moves into the future. New technology, projects, and ideas are shared between members at our three yearly meetings. Please feel free to dig into our history and governance, fill out an application, and join us in discussion at our next meeting.
