The state highway system. The conscien­ tious administrator is not only acutely aware of this investment but is concerned with protecting it by proper renewal and replacement. Sufficiency ratings can be used to budget available funds for highway improvements in the relative order of need and thus protect the public's investment.

The Highway Statistics Series consists of annual reports containing analyzed statistical information on motor fuel, motor vehicle registrations, driver licenses, highway user taxation, highway mileage, travel, and highway finance.

These information are presented in tables as well as selected charts. It has been published annually since Primary System" was prepared in "A Report of Highway Sufficiencies on the Federal-Aid Secondary System in Kentucky" was prepared also and included county maps.

The Secondary numbering system is unique within a county. The Secondary numbering system carries the county number followed by a unique number for that particular road.

An example is S This defines a secondary road in Richland County (40) with a road number of Route relation tagging for state highways / primary routes is as follows. The aim of location survey is to select a route with the following points kept in mind: 1.

With reasonable economy it should meet the minimum requirement regarding curvature and grades. To produce an easy riding (traveling), free flowing traffic artery that has a high capacity and it meets all the safety standards.

The location survey should recognize and evaluate the. The federal system further increased the highway network, and the bulk of the state and interstate highway system was completed by with the completion of I from Raleigh to Wilmington (Harrington ).

State highway organizations commonly use a numerical eval­ uation system for priority planning of roadway improvements.

Most evaluation systems in use are patterned after a numerical rating scheme, first developed by the Arizona Highway Depart­ ment in (), that describes a highway's "sufficiency.". performance, state by state. States with high ratings typically have better-than-average highway system conditions—low numbers of deficient bridges, and smooth pavement conditions—along with relatively low per-mile expenditures on metrics such as administrative costs.

Referred to as the "urban-centric" classification system to distinguish it from the previous "metro-centric" classification system, the new classification system has four major locale categories—city, suburban, town, and rural—each of which is subdivided into three subcategories.

A Guide to Reporting Highway Statistics is a principal part of the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) comprehensive highway information collection effort. The Congress recognized the need for information to support highway policy development and created the Office of Road Inquiry in the Department of Agriculture in The minimum width of traveled way for rural roads is m (18 ft), and the minimum shoulder width is (2 ft).

These minimum values are to be increased based on road classification, design speed, and traffic levels. By South Dakota statute, the minimum total roadway width is m (22 ft).

Known as Monticello Avenue, it runs for miles ( km) from VA 5 southwest of Williamsburg, Virginia to the junction of State RouteState Routeand State Route Interstates: Interstate X (I-X). Reason Foundation’s Annual Highway Report ranks the performance of state highway systems in 11 categories, including spending per mile, pavement conditions, deficient bridges, traffic congestion, and fatality rates.

North Dakota was the top-ranked state on performance and cost-effectiveness thanks to excellent scores on urban Interstate pavement condition (3rd overall), rural Interstate.

Total system mileage may differ when categorized by ownership and functional system due to rounding at different levels of aggregation.

Additionally, total system mileage categorized by surface type is based on sampling and is not comparable to the totals based on the other categorizations.

The document is intended to provide practical and efficient methods. Rural Public Transportation Systems. Rural public transportation systems serve communities outside of urban areas. Types of rural public transportation include demand–response public transportation (dial-a-ride), traditional and deviated fixed route services (e.g., shuttles, circulators), vanpool, or reimbursement programs.

A road network is composed of various types of roads, each of which performs a particular service in facilitating vehicular travel between points of trip origin and destination, and in providing access to property.

Road classification is the orderly grouping of roads into systems according to the type and degree of service they provide to the public. This list is the base for US road classification. It is based off the US administative system already in place with minor modifications for trunk class and urban areas.

Any state, or city clarifications should be noted on their apropriate page. Motorway. Interstate Highways; Freeway; A Divided highway that is entirely grade separated. This extensive highway mileage and the high percentage of deficient bridges impose a major economic burden on rural state and local government.
