^a This includes ALT, TRUCK, BYP, CONN, and SCENIC US routes.
^b Generally, default to the LOWER of the two choices. However, use the greater of the two choices if the road is between two urban areas and is classified higher in the urban area than in the rural one. If the road does not enter another urban area, then use the lower choice. Additional discussion and examples on how this should be applied can be found in this discussion: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=596&t=102099&start=10
If the road is dirt, gravel, or otherwise unpaved, then the road should ALWAYS be marked as "Dirt / 4x4 Trail", regardless of classification. MDOT does have some gravel/dirt roads marked as major/minor/urban collectors. Be aware of this and be careful to confirm the road surface type outside of areas you are familiar or are in very rural areas of the state.
