SCR Wazeopedia State Template

Welcome to the Texas Wazeopedia. Below you will find information related to editing for Waze in Texas that is not covered in the main South Central Region Wazeopedia article, which includes the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas. All editors in the region are required to have a non usa_username, have their private messaging turned on, and turn live users on in the layers menu. Do not edit in Invisible mode if you are a rank 3 or below. Please pay attention to the chat window in the lower right-hand part the map editor (and introduce yourself if you're a first-time editor). You can find useful info there and ask questions. You can also find useful information at the US South Central forum page. In addition to the information on the forum, we encourage you to join Slack as this is the best way to chat with SCR and state-specific editors, as well as the state managers (SM) and regional coordinator (RC), request unlocks, get help, etc. Once you receive the Slack invitation, log in and join the #scr-general channel and your specific state's channel.

Counties and Municipalities

There are 6386 cities and towns spread across 254 counties in Texas. See Cities in Texas for proper naming information.

City names should be everything inside of the city limits. City limits are clearly defined by the green signs. Use of Google Maps to find where a city is highly discouraged.

Major construction projects in Texas

See TxDot for a list of LONG TERM road closures & changes to traffic flow that impact the Waze map.

If you are aware or made aware of any long term closures (construction, work closures and emergency closures), please fill out this form. Your submission will be reviewed by US Champs and submitted to the Waze team upon approval.

I-35 (Austin to DFW)

SH-360 Toll Arlington/Grand Prairie/Mansfield

The new SH-360 tollway is in progress between I-20 and US-287. It will include 3-4 mainlanes in each direction along with direct connectors to US-287 in Mansfield.

SH-360 Toll Video

SH-360 / I-30 Interchange Arlington

One of the last relics of the old Dallas-Fort Worth Turnpike, the I-30 / SH-360 interchange, is getting a makeover. It will be upgraded to a four level stack interchange with continuous frontage roads on SH-360 and a reconfiguration of Six Flags Dr.

I-35W Fort Worth (North Tarrant Express)

I-35W is being reconstructed from downtown Fort Worth to US-287. The new configuration will include tolled express lanes along with upgraded interchanges at SH-121, I-820 and US-287.

I-35E Dallas to Denton (35 Express)

Thirty miles of I-35E is being rebuilt from I-635 in Dallas to US-380 in Denton. It will include two tolled reversible express lanes, new interchanges at FM 407 and Belt Line Rd and new bridges across Lake Lewisville.

Functional Classification of Roads

See Road names/USA and Road types/USA.

The South Central Region participates in functional classification across all states. We promote a hybrid FC to ensure for the best routing possible for all Wazers. The hybrid FC basically means a state highway would never be typed less than Minor Highway (mH).

Frontage roads along Freeways should be matched to FC. If FC does not list the frontage road, type it as a Primary Street.

Turnarounds (those labeled as Turnaround, not cross-overs), should be matched to FC. If FC does not list the Turnaround, match it to the lowest road type that it touches - similar to AGCs.

FC Maps for Texas

Use the appropriate link below to access the Functional Classification map for the state you are working in. Once you have reviewed the map, then refer to the FC cross reference chart below to determine what road type and lock level should be assigned to the roads in the area. For roads that need to be locked at a higher level than you are able, change the street to the correct type, then request a lock from a higher-level editor.

http://www.txdot.gov/apps/statewide_mapping/StatewidePlanningMap.html

FC cross reference

Refer to this chart to determine the road type of a given paved public road based on the functional class.

To use this chart, first determine the functional class of a road, and whether it is a signed, numbered highway in a particular highway system.

Where the column for the road's highway system and the row for the road's functional class meet, you will find the proper road type for that particular road.

A number of examples are given below the chart.

^a When a state highway "SPUR" route is used to connect a state highway with another state highway, a US highway, or an Interstate (i.e., when it is used as a connector/CONN route), use the first state highway column.

^b Also known as Principal Arterial - Interstate.

^c Also known as Principal Arterial - Freeway.

^d Also known as Principal Arterial - Expressway.

^e Also known as Principal Arterial.

^f Also known as Other Arterial.


For example,

  • An Interstate Business Loop classified as a Minor Arterial is a  Major Highway .
  • A US Highway classified as a Minor Arterial is a  Major Highway .
  • A US Highway Spur route classified as a Minor Arterial is a  Minor Highway .
  • A State Highway classified as an Other Freeway is a  Freeway .
  • A State Highway classified as a Collector is a  Minor Highway .
  • A County Route classified as a Minor Arterial is a  Minor Highway .
  • A County Route classified as a Collector is a  Primary Street 
  • A locally-maintained road classified as an Other Principal Arterial is a  Major Highway .
  • A locally-maintained road classified as a Collector is a  Primary Street .

FC issues on State Maps

If you find any issues where FC changes unexpectedly such as in the image (the small section of green in between 2 red sections), please let the Regional Coordinator (RC) know exactly where this is located, so the appropriate DOT can be notified.

Road Lock Standards

In Texas 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. If you find a road locked to a higher level than its minimum, please leave it locked no lower than that level when you have finished editing.

Michelle-s Minimum Locking Rank Standard

 Freeway  5
 Ramp  4
 Major Highway  4
 Minor Highway  3
 Primary Street  2
