Military Bases and Government Installations
The United States military machine uses bases to house and train our Airmen, Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers to send them to the front lines of battle or disaster. The military has bases throughout the country in different terrain to help keep the troops trained for various types of terrain throughout the world. Someone in stationed in Florida may find themselves in the desert of California for desert warfare, while someone from California may be sent to Alaska to train in the arctic cold. Each base is unique in what it is used for.
Bases vary in size. There are a few small bases within the city limits of Los Angeles, and there are large ones in the deserts of California, New Mexico, and Texas. Some are surrounded by cities, while some are in the middle of nowhere. One thing they all have in common is there are people who live and work on the base and need some direction to/from their place of residence/work. This page is designed to help you edit inside of a military base.
All roads within the confines of the gate for a military base should have the official name of the base as the city name. Examples: NS Mayport, NAS Jacksonville, or NSB Kings Bay.
Approved abbreviations are:
While road treatment is covered here, gates should be set to private road going into the gate and / going out of the gate.
Bases do not get functional classification per state guidelines. They all fall outside of state DoTs and therefore do not need to be functionally classed. For most military bases (especially in the eastern part of the US) the highest classification should be. For those large bases in the western part of the US, is allowed.

City names should change at the gate.
