=== Freeways ===Pennsylvania follows the general [[Road names/USA|road naming]] and [[Road types/USA|road type]] guidelines of the USA. The Functional Classification chart shown below has been modified from the national chart to more closely reflect the roads in Pennsylvania.
'''Interstates, US Highways, and State Routes''' that meet the general standards for Interstates should have the '''[[Road types/USA#Freeway=== {{Anchor|Freeway]]''' Road Type applied to them in the editor. Some of these roads may have [[Rest areas]].FC cross reference}}Functional Classification reference chart ===
=== US routes ===Use this chart to determine the road type for Pennsylvania roads based on the functional class.
'''US Highways''' that don't meet First, find the functional class of the road from the [[Road typeshttp://www.dot.state.pa.us/Internet/bureaus/pdplanres.nsf/USA#Freeway|interstate standardsinfoBPRfunctionalclassmaps PennDOT Functional Classification county maps]] should have and determine if it is a signed, numbered highway in a one of the '''[[Road types/USA#Major highway|Major]]''' or '''[[Road types/USA#Minor highway|Minor]]''' road type applied to themsystems.
US Highway names should use Follow the following format:column for the road's highway system down to the row for the road's functional class to find the proper road type for that particular road.
*Keep local names as primary The PennDOT color coding is cross-referenced in the first column of the table for your convenience.  <div style="font-size:smaller">{| border="1" style="border-collapse:collapse; text-align:center"! scope="row" rowspan="2" colspan="2"| ! colspan="8"| <big>Highway Systems</big>|-!

=== State routes with 2 or 3 digit route numbers ===
<gallery>File:PA_SR_Shield.png</gallery>In Pennsylvania all State Routes with 2 or 3 digit route numbers (e.g. ''State Rte 28 or State Rte 315'') should be [[Road types/USA#Minor highway|Minor Highways]] or higher. State Routes should have any common name as displayed on street signs as the primary name in WME, and the route number in the alternate name field. The city name should be the same for both the common name and route number. ''State Rte SR-111'' is the current acceptable format. The use of '''State Hwy''' or '''PA-xxx''' and other variations '''{{Red|should not}}''' be used unless it is on the road signs that drivers would see. Please note, that despite the designation of a "Minor Highway" these road types do not necessarily need high speed limits along their entire route.
State Route naming should follow the following format:
*State Rte SR-28 S (divided one-way segments).*State Rte SR-309 (undivided two-way segments).
'''{{Red|Note}}''': Some state routes have mixed signage, with route numbers at major intersections and road names at minor intersections. Until Waze gets state shields working completely, the best practice is to name the segments according the the signage that the motorist will see as he approaches the state route, with priority given to the major intersections.
=== State routes with 4 digit route numbers ===
Most State Routes with 4 digits (e.g. State Rte SR-3001) should not have the road type set as a [[Road types/USA#Primary street|Primary Streetroute number in the alternate field.]] Some 4SR-digit State Routes are numbered for legacy or maintenance reasons, but they do not serve as primary thoroughfares for the area and xxxx should be classified as Streetsremoved from the alt field, if you find it.
=== County or township roads ===
County (Co) and Township (T) roads need no special designation or road type. Road number info is not needed in the alternate name field.
 
=== Primary streets ===
 
With rare exceptions, the [[Road types/USA#Primary street|Primary Street]] classification should be applied to the following roads when requirements for a higher classification are not met:
 
*Main road that connects two State Routes, Major Highways, or Freeways.
*Most State Routes with 4 digit route numbers. (See above for exceptions.)
*Main urban thoroughfares.
*When it is obvious that a city street department wants you to follow the route.
*Primary route connecting two towns.
*Main route to a key tourist or business destination.
*Multi-lane roads not otherwise classified as highways.
 
Other criteria for Primary Street:
 
*An improved road with smooth grading and a yellow center line painted throughout.
*No dead-ends
*Each segment should connect to a Primary Street or higher classification road at each end. There are rare exceptions to this.
 
A primary street designation is relative to population and traffic densities. In the smallest rural town, a primary street may be a narrow two-lane. In dense urban areas primary streets may be a divided road with multiple lanes in each direction.
 
'''{{Red|Note}}''': Local knowledge should always be applied when designating Primary Streets. If you are not sure, drive it to see if it should be classified above a regular street. You may check the GPS point density in the [[Map Editor Interface and Controls#Layers|WME Map Layers]] to see which streets might be Primary.
 
Primary Streets should have the name on the street signs as the primary name in WME.
