Functional Classifications

Wisconsin follows the Functional Classification (FC) system for the USA.

To help update the current Wisconsin roadways to the new functional classifications, go to the Wisconsin Functional Classification Inventory.


Locking standard

In Wisconsin we have a set minimum standard for locking roads based on segment type. Any road of a certain segment type must be locked at least to the rank (level) in the chart below. Roads may be locked higher for protection and special situations (areas with construction, tricky design, frequent mistakes, imaging inaccuracies, and the like), but should not be locked lower.

A great time to implement these locks is while bringing the road types of an area into compliance with the current US road type standards (FC and highway systems). Lock the roads based on type after they've been set to current US road type standards.

Wisconsin Minimum Locking Rank Standard
Segment Type Statewide
 Freeway  5
 Ramp  Highest rank of connected segment
 Major Highway  3
 Minor Highway  2
 Primary Street  2
 Street  1
 |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-| Railroad |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|  2
 • • • • Ferry • • • •   5

Note: These are minimums and, for protection, certain segments may be set at higher lock levels. In these cases, please contact the last editor or a Wisconsin SM before editing the segments. Once changes have been made and verified, the locks should be returned to their elevated levels, unless standard levels are approved by a Wisconsin SM


Name Normalization

Wisconsin will use the following standards for road naming:
Freeways - I-###
US Highways - US-###
State Highways - WIS-###
County Highways - CH-XXX
Forest Roads - FR-###

There are no Township (Town) Roads in the state. All Town Roads are named, and those names will be used. The only exceptions would be if the road signage states differently.


Additional notes for this state

  • Dirt Roads - In Wisconsin all roads that are normally unpaved are considered dirt roads as this is how drivers expect the "Avoid Dirt Roads" feature to behave.
  • Toll Roads - There are currently no tolls in Wisconsin. No segments within the state of Wisconsin should be marked as 'Toll Road'
  • Pedestrian Boardwalk and Walking Trail - These should not be mapped without approval from a State Manager for Wisconsin or the Regional Coordinator. These segment types can cause routing issues even when not connected to a driveable segment.
