VDOT Functional Classification

Virginia updates the road classifications every 10 years and the next update will be published in 2025. The functional classifications are available via an interactive map that can be found here. The updates have been conditionally approved and should be used for setting road type in WME.

The previous versions of Functional Highway Maps represent the previous road classifications, and may be used to help understand functional classification changes.

Consult the Road Types (USA) page for further guidance on how to type based on functional class and road signage. Note, however, that where that page says that "signed, numbered state highways" must be designated at least as Minor Highway type, in Virginia that applies only to primary state highways. See Virginia#Road type guidance for more detail.

Rural farm and logging roads that are never open to the public should be marked as Private Road type to prevent routing. Most should be left off the map unless they serve multiple residences or residences out of sight of the main road. The Dirt Road/4x4 Trail designation should be reserved for public (state/locality maintained) dirt roads and Forest Service roads, etc, that a user may actually traverse freely during at least part of the year.
