Functional Class- AHTD
This data set contains Functional Classification roads for the State of Arkansas per the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD). This file should only be used as a graphical representation and for general reporting. Field verification and source contact should always occur prior to financial planning taking place. Functional classification is the process by which streets and highways are grouped into classes, or systems, according to the character of service they are intended to provide. Basic to this process is the recognition that individual roads and streets do not serve travel independently in any major way. Rather, most travel involves movement through a network of roads. It becomes necessary then to determine how this travel can be channelized within the network in a logical and efficient manner. Functional classification defines the nature of this channelization process by defining the part that any particular road or street should play in serving the flow of trips through a highway network.
