Tennessee/Special roads/Main

From Wazeopedia


Generally, if a road can't be driven on (i.e. Walking Trail, Pedestrian Boardwalk, Stairway, Railroad, Runway/Taxiway) then it should not be mapped in Waze. This is due to the way the routing engine works, as Waze WILL route users to drive on these "Non-Drivable" road types.

Toll Roads

There are currently no toll roads in the state, so there should be no road segments with the 'toll road' checkbox enabled. The only exception is the three ferries currently operating in state, each of which charge a small fee for passage.

Unpaved Roads

If, after determining functional classification of an unpaved (dirt or gravel) road segment, the road is determined to be  Primary Street  or  Street , set it to the "Dirt Road / 4X4 Trail" type. If, however, an unpaved road is determined to be a  Freeway ,  Major Highway , or  Minor Highway , do not set it as dirt road.

National Park Roads

The National Park Service uses a separate functional classification system for park roads. According to this system, some park roads would be upgraded from Street to  Primary Street . US highways crossing through national parks, regardless of NPS classification, should be set to  Major Highway . There are no state highways in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
