Local Naming Guidance

  • New Jersey State uses the short format when naming State and County Highways/Routes and their spurs, loops, etc.

State Routes: SR-XXX (e.g. SR-70, SR-70 W)

County Routes: CR-XXX (e.g. CR-567, CR-567 Spur)

  • Concurrent routes which are signed/shielded with both names, AND commonly referred to using both names together, should use both names separated by a slash (/) as the primary name, and each individual named as an alternate name. (e.g. US-1 / US-9)
  • Highway name descriptors, such as TRUCK, EXPRESS, etc. should be added after the name in ALL CAPS. (e.g. US-1 TRUCK, or on a concurrent road US-1 TRUCK / US-9 TRUCK)
  • Highways passing through a local area which have a supplementary name for the road on street signs, use the name of the Local Road in the primary field and the numbered one in the alternate field.

Locking Standard

In New Jersey State we have a set minimum standard for locking roads based on segment type. This means that any road of a certain segment type should be locked at least to the rank in the chart below. Roads may be locked higher if necessary for special situations, but should not be locked lower.

A great time to implement these locks is while performing the Functional Classification/FC Upgrade of an area. Lock the roads based on type after they've been set to FC standards.

New Jersey Minimum Locking Rank Standard
Segment Type Urban Area Rural Area
 Freeway  5
 Ramp  5
 Major Highway  5 4
 Minor Highway  4 3
 Primary Street  2
 Street  1
