Introduction

Community identification includes graphics and/or text that conveys information about a region, community, or area. Community identification usually represents the identity, history, resources or defining characteristics of the area.  It is placed on required engineered highway features, such as sound walls, retaining walls, bridges, bridge abutments, bridge rails, and slope paving.

Community identification is provided and maintained by the public agency sponsoring the project.

Policy

Community Identification policy is described in Chapter 29 of Caltrans Project Development Procedures Manual (PDPM).
