The Greater Minnesota Functional Classification Review is complete and received FHWA approval on October 13, 2015. MnDOT is transitioning to a new Linear Referencing System and is in the process of cleaning up the data migration from the TIS mainframe system. Entering functional classification changes is part of this data migration cleanup process and may take a few months to complete.
What is functional classification?
Functional classification is the grouping of streets and highways into classes or systems according to the character of service they are intended to provide. Basic to this process is the recognition that most travel involves movement through a network of roads. Functional classification defines the role that any particular road or street plays in serving the flow of trips through an entire network.
