:State, County, Township and other local roads have many regional variances, so local variations across the county. Local standards have been established at state levels. It is very important to check the state pages [[Highway naming/USA|highway naming table]] along with the other state guidelines that can be found by selecting the state]] for in the regional standardstable below.{{USA Navbox|state}}
; Road Badges
: Road Unique road sign badges that are regionally customized by for each state or region is a feature that is in the works for the future use, but there is no estimate on when this feature will be implemented.: The Live Map will currently parse "State Rte xx" and "State Hwy yyy" showing a generic sign badge. However, as different states have different naming conventions, no states use this standard any longer. State Highways should always be named according to the individual state's standard here [[Highway naming/USA|highway naming by state]] which standardize standardizes the formats for future road badge implementation.: CountyMaintaining consistency to the [[Highway naming/USA|state naming standards]] also applies to county, Townshiptownship, and or other badges may also be roads listed in the works. So maintaining consistency to local standards apply to for potential future road badges for these roads as well.
; Road Name Details : For deicing the primary name of a road with multiple possible names, see the [[#Concurrent_names|concurrent names]] section above: All road names needed for any purpose need to be included as alternate names if they are not used as the primary name.: * Bulleted list item : State and local routes may also be split if it they [[Best_map_editing_practice#When_.28Not.29_to_Split_a_Two-Way_Road|meets the guidelines]]to do so. Split routes may have the cardinal direction at the end of the name. See to denote the state standards for more specifics reguading regional best practicesdirection of travel.
: Also refer to the [[#Concurrent_names|concurrent names]] section when the highway passes through a city or town that also has a local name for the road.
;Text to speech
:Specific the text to speech details can be found at [[Abbreviations and acronyms/USA]] :Special care must be given to routes that include cardinal directions (N, S, E, W) so that they are pronounced as the letter rather than the direction (getting the text to speech to say the letter 'E' rather than the word 'east' :The most common abbreviations you may see include SR SH CR CH  :Text to speech on the client reads CR as "County Road." So "CR-10" is read as "County Road Ten"
   Where road names are the same as , place the letter designator in single quotes :Special care must be given to routes named with a lowercase <!-- Some say letters that lowercase in not necessary --> letter include cardinal directions (CR-'n' CR-'s' CR-'e' CR-'w'N, S, E, W) so that they are pronounced as the voice prompt will read letter rather than the letter and not say it as a direction. Double or triple-letter roads with directional letters (e.g. CR-EN, CR-SAL) have not been tested but might be pronounced as if a word. There is no other TTS abbreviation for county owned roads in any capacity. For these reasons: that county shields may someday be supported (and a named standard makes this easier to implement), and for brevity's sake in turn instructions and map displays, it is suggested (but by no means required) that individual states adopt example having the CR- standard. Another standard in use (which is longer, but you may see) is 'County Hwy XX'. The shortened format of CH- is available and is encouraged text to speech to be adopted when CR- is not appropriate. Many states have adopted say the short format '''CR-xxx''' instead of letter E rather than the longer format. See the [[Highway naming/USA|highway naming by state]] table for specific formatting of each stateword East.
: Also refer to the [[#Concurrent_names|concurrent names]] section when the highway passes through a city or town that also has a local name for the road.
For regions that have township highways, the shortened formats of TH- and TR- are also available.
