Road Reclassification Application

Reclassifying a road system helps to evaluate roadway needs and improvement priorities. Funding is based on the Federal Aid Classification. It’s important that roads are classified as major collectors or above for eligibility for FA3 or FA4. We conduct research necessary, including generating traffic counts and accident data needed for road reclassifications. 

According to INDOT, federal legislation uses functional classification in determining eligibility for funding under the Federal-aid program. Federal Code and Indiana Department of Transportation requires a road to be classified no lower than a Major Collector on the National Highway/Federal Aid System to receive federal funding. Roads that are inaccurately classified by use and traffic patterns can apply to be reclassified by completing INDOT’s Roadway Functional Classification System application.
