Information related to using Waze in the State of New Hampshire.

This new page is currently undergoing modifications. The information presented should be considered a draft, not yet ready for use. This content is open to changes from anyone during construction. If you would like to make changes or have questions, please post a message in this forum. Please use the talk page for thoughts and ideas on setting up this content.

Cities and Towns

There are 234 Cities and Towns in the state. See xxxx for proper naming information.

Major Roads

See Road names/USA, Road types/USA and New Hampshire/Roads by type

Interstate 89 - From Concord to Lebanon (60.80 mi)
Interstate 93 - (Portions Toll) From Salem to Littleton (131.39 mi)
Interstate 95 - (Portions Toll) From Seabrook to Portsmouth (16.11mi)
Interstate 293 - From Manchester to Hooksett (11.18 mi)
Interstate 393 - From Concord to Pembroke (4.50 mi)


Landmarks in New Hampshire should follow the national guidelines for Places and should not deviate without consensus in the state forum.

Major Construction Projects

See the New Hampshire Forum for a list of long term road closures and changes to traffic flow that impact the Waze Map.

Road types

Locking roads

In New Hampshire 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.

A great time to implement these locks is while bringing the road types of an area into compliance with the current US road type standards (FC and highway systems). Lock the roads based on type after they've been set to current US road type standards.

New Hampshire Minimum Locking Rank Standard
Segment Type Statewide
 Freeway  5
 Ramp  Highest rank of connected segments
 Major Highway  3
 Minor Highway  3
 Primary Street  1 (Auto)
 Street  1 (Auto)
 |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-| Railroad |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|  2
 • • • • Ferry • • • •   5
 Private Road  1 (Auto)

Note: Do Not Mass Edit just to update locks to these standards, these can adjusted as you find while editing other aspects of the segments such as FC, speed limits, naming, etc.

Some segments still warrant higher locks and care should be taken when setting segment lock to these standards to look for and protect these special setups with higher locks. Some examples; segments which are part of BDP, U-turn prevention, or using micro-doglegs, or other complex intersection setups.

National guidance


  • Alleys should always be mapped if they have a name.
  • Alleys should always be mapped if they are the sole access to a home or business.
  • Alleys should always be set to "Private"
  • Alleys are normally mapped if they are acknowledged by the municipality.

If an alley does not meet the above criteria, mapping is optional. Leave the name field blank.

Non-Drivable Roads

Generally, if a path can't be driven on (e.g. Walking Trail, Pedestrian Boardwalk, Stairway, Railroad, Runway/Taxiway) then it not normally mapped. If it is mapped, it should not be connected to any roads. This is due to the way the routing engine works, as Waze will route users to drive on these "Non-Drivable" road types.

It is permitted to map Railroads, according to the wiki, since some users run Waze while on the train and contributing false data to the system. This false data has been known to affect drivers on adjacent roads.

Speed / Red Light Cameras

Both Speed and Red Light Cameras are not permitted in New Hampshire and should not be mapped.
