NMDOT to Waze Functional Classification conversion
The New Mexico Classification and Color scheme comes from the official New Mexico D.O.T (NMDOT) Functional Classification (FC) map that is published by NMDOT. The legend shows what classifications NMDOT uses and what color is assigned to each class. The actual interactive State Map can be found here:
