field manual cover

This online video training series covers the key elements required for temporary traffic control, safety, and flagging. Its goal is to provide flexible, timely, and accessible training that helps keep local agencies up-to-date.

The series consists of 11 video modules: 10 that cover different sections of the Minnesota Temporary Traffic Control Field Manual and one "flagging-only" module designed for agencies with only two-lane roads that rely primarily on flagging operations for traffic control.
