Functional classification maps
The current standard in Louisiana is to use the Proposed Highway Functional Classification Maps. They are available at the link below. The Interactive Online Map is particularly helpful.
Dedicated U turn segments
Dedicated U turn segments in the New Orleans metropolitan area (at least) shall be named "U turn". Since U turn segments in Jefferson Parish (at least) are signed as such, and since Jefferson Parish comprises a large portion of the metropolitan area, it's best to keep the naming of U turn segments consistent.
The geometry of the segment should be set such that the instruction onto the U turn will be "turn left". For more heavily curved U turn segments, zoom in and insert a geometry node near the first junction node to create roughly a 90° angle with the road as shown in this section of the Junction Style Guide.
