Equipment Loan Program

Test Your Retroreflectivity!

Under FHWA’s Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) retroreflectivity requirements of traffic signs, California’s cities, counties, and regional transportation agencies are responsible for maintaining their signs to a minimum level of retroreflectivity and contrast levels.

To help local agencies meet these requirements, Caltrans and Sacramento State are offering a Retroreflectometer Loan Program.  Under this program, local agencies will have access to retroreflectometer equipment at no charge for up to two weeks.  Local agencies will be required to sign a Loan-Borrow Agreement and pick up and return the equipment at Sacramento State’s College of Continuing Education (CCE).

If you would like to reserve the equipment, please contact Tracy Coan at (916) 278-4524 or
