We are currently looking into standardizing the way Wyoming highways are named. More information will be added as it becomes available.

State highway naming

Wyoming Highway

State highways are to be named WY-###
(TTS pronunciation "Wyoming ###")

County road naming

County roads with the name designation of "County Road ##" or "Co Rd ##" are to be named in Waze as CR-##. This shortened version takes up less space on the map screen and is announced correctly as "County Road ##" while navigating with the Waze app.

Locking standard

In Wyoming, we observe a minimum standard for locking roads based on segment type. Any road of a certain segment type must be locked at least to the rank listed in the chart below. Roads may be locked higher for protection and special situations (construction, confusing design, frequent mistakes, image inaccuracies, etc.), but should not be locked lower.

Wyoming Minimum Locking Ranks
Segment Type Rank
 Freeway  5
 Ramp  4
 Major Highway  4
 Minor Highway  3
 Primary Street  2
 |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-| Railroad |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|  2
All Others 1

Roads named N, S, E or W

If you encounter any roads that are named N, S, E, or W, you must add a period (.) to the end of the letter. For example, West N Street is abbreviated as W N. St. County Road W is abbreviated as CR-W., and so on. This ensures the TTS system reads the road name as "County Road W" and not "County Road West."
