Functional classification

Please review the USA Functional Classification page and the FC Quick Reference Chart for details on this topic. In rare cases, a particular road may require a different type than prescribed in the national guidance. Before changing the type of any road past the bounds of the rules, please post the situation to the Maryland Forum to receive feedback. Maryland resources can be found in the following links:

Road names

Use these state-wide maps for the names and numbers of Interstate, US, and State highways. They also include the names of many local roads.

Tools to identify street addresses:

  • MD Finder: From the Layers list select "Parcel Points." Type in the full address (Street, City) then add "Parcel Boundaries" and/ or "Six-Inch Imagery." Click on the green "parcel point" to view address information.
  • MD Dept of Planning (merlin). Under the Contents tab, check Parcel Boundaries and uncheck all other options. Navigate to a property and click it, then click SDAT URL in the popup for the Real Property page.

Counties and cities

Use these maps for the names of local roads and smaller streets not identified on the state maps. Some also provide house numbers.
