Road (Segment) Types

Determining road types in the Southeast aligns with the Waze USA Standard for freeway, major highway, minor highways, and primary streets. The Waze USA standard is a hybrid system based on a national standard called "functional classification" with a few modifications.

Functional classification maps are available for most states. Compliance across state borders is important to insure better route selections between states; however, editors in some states have deferred adoption of the USA Standard due to in-state concerns. If you edit in any region than the Southeast, you must comply with that state's recommendations.

Although the Waze USA Standard permits some road-type selection deviation, at present no Southeast deviations are permitted, but may be in the future.

Minimum Road Type Standards

  • Interstate =  Freeway 
  • US Hwy =  Major Highway  (MH)
  • State Roads =  Minor Highway  (mH)

Road Segment Naming

  •  Interstates: I-xx 
  •  US Hwy: US-xx 
  •  State Road/Rte/Hwy: SR-xx 
  •  County Rte/Hwy: CR-xx 
  • Parking Lot Roads -- We do not name parking lot roads in the SER. Consult with your State Manager if you think a parking lot road segment should be named.

Often when US Hwys, State Roads, and County Roads pass through municipalities, they have a local name (e.g, "Main St"). Please see Road Names for instructions on how to name these segments. Check here for other states. Note that Freeway and Ramp segments do not have an included city name. Select the 'none' checkbox beside the city field for these types of road segments.
