Functional Classification

The Highway Functional Classification System defines the role a roadway plays in the overall road network. Each roadway is classified in two ways. First by whether it is ‘urban’ or ‘rural’ as defined by Rhode Island’s Transportation Urban Rural Boundary map, and second by its function within the network.

We are utilizing the Federal Functional Classification system, because it matches up with other states.
