Draft Military Installations Update

Military Installations and DoD Facilities

The United States Military has installations and facilities located throughout our Nation to train and support our Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard personnel. The DoD has two general classes of facilities. The first are Posts, Bases, and other Facilities that are gated and geographically distinct from their surrounding communities. The second type of DoD facility is Training complexes, Airfields, schoolhouses and offices that are located within our communities. This wiki is intended for use for Installations and facilities located within the Continental United States (CONUS), its overseas States of Alaska and Hawaii, and the territories of Guam, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. Another Waze DoD Military installations wiki is under development for all other DoD Installations stationed Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS).

Naming

All roads within the confines of the gated fenceline of a Military Installation should have the official name of the base/post as the city name. Examples: Ft Knox, NS Mayport, NAS Jacksonville, NSB Kings Bay, Tinker AFB, Camp Pendleton, CGAS Houston, March ARB. City names should change at the gates, where the installation roads begin. Some DoD Training centers, facilities, and offices use a City address and street names for their designation. Use the address and street names as posted on the facilities and as published by the Public Affairs Offices (PAO) of that facility's command.

  • Roads

    Gates

    While road treatment is covered here, gates should be set to private road going into the gate and  Street / Primary Street  going out of the gate.

    500pxSTANDARD Gate treatment example. Note that this road is of a "primary" type but the private segment used for the inbound lane is used to prevent through-routing.

    Functional classification

    Most roads within a base are set to street.

    Bases are not set to functional classification per state guidelines as they all fall outside of state DoTs. For most military bases (especially in the eastern part of the US) the highest classification should be  Primary Street . For those large bases in the western part of the US,  Minor Highway  is allowed.

    Typically, bases east of the Mississippi River are not big enough for  Minor Highway .  Primary Street  should be the highest classification of road. Roads leading to/from gates can be classified at the higher level road. If a road is a high traffic road for the base, it can be classified as a  Primary Street .

    Gates

  • Gates can have Area Places over the gate areas to denote the structures being present.
  • Gates Restrictions and Hours go on the Private road segment as well as the segment leaving the base which is opposite the Private road. There is no need to put hours on every segment involved in the gate structure.
  • Gates which are permanently closed can be restricted 24/7 via the Edit Restrictions function of the road segments.
  • Gates should have a tiered locking system which works like this: The Private road is locked at 6. Any segments connected to the Private one(s) are locked at 5. Segments connected to those (at 5) are locked at 4, which is the lowest tier.
  • Places

    Military bases

    Most military bases do not need an area placed around them. Smaller bases can have an area placed on it. If you can fit a large majority of the base into the screen at the 500' level, then it qualifies for an area. NOLF Imperial Point is an example of this type of setup. Make sure all roads in the area are created and treated just as any other road. If there is only one road in/out, the private gate does not need to be set up, as there is no need to restrict the general population as Waze will not route through the base.

    Places approved for military bases

    PHOTOS OF ANY KIND ARE NOT ALLOWED

    • College / University
    • Commissary
    • Gas stations
    • Lodging (base hotels)
    • Museums
    • Parade grounds
    • Parks
    • PX/BX
    • Residences
    • School

    Places not approved for military bases

    The reasoning behind these are a person who is hungry and searches for "Burger King" will get the closest one to them. The closest may be on a military base which they don't have access to.

    • Barracks
    • Fast food places
    • Hangars
    • Numbered buildings
    • Troop clubs (NCO, officer, etc)
