Outdoor Advertising Control (OAC) limits the location, size, spacing, and lighting of signs adjacent to the interstate, National Highway System, and other Federal-Aid primary routes. Regulators are responsible for enforcing these requirements. The material in this training applies to all States and will help participants interpret major legislation and make effective decisions in support of OAC.
There are two related OAC Web-based trainings (WBTs): one designed for Bonus States (23 states) and the other for the remaining non-Bonus States. 141049 Outdoor Advertising Control: Non-Bonus States and 141048 Outdoor Advertising Control: Bonus States. Please refer to 141048 for information on this companion course.
The course follows recommended FHWA specifications and practices for drilled shaft construction but may be modified to follow local agency specifications and practices.
