Production and purpose of Town Highway Maps
The Mapping Section of the Agency of Transportation Policy, Planning and Intermodal Development Division produces the Town Highway Maps to document classification and mileage of town highways for purposes of calculating payment to towns of State Aid for town highway maintenance. The maps also include state highways, some federal highways and other highways that are part of the public highway network.
These Town Highway Maps are updated based on information supplied by municipalities on an annual Mileage Certificates. Maps are only updated when there are on changes submitted on the certificates, or other updates are necessary to keep the maps current, such as changes to surface type, public lands, surface waters, or other cartographic features. There may be maps that are listed with dates that are not the current map cycle, which is due to no mileage changes having been provided by the municipality and no cartographic changes made by the Mapping Section.
Frequently Asked Questions
Class 1 Town Highway Lane Miles are sections of Class 1 that may be divided or multi-lane sections. These miles are in addition to the class 1 miles and in some years, get supplemental funding, but are not used in the standard appropriation calculation for state aid for maintenance funding.
Class 1 Lane Miles need to meet specific criteria to be included and mileage shouldn't be doubled for undivided highway sections with 2 lanes (ie: primary and secondary directions). The eligibility standards that we use for lane miles is as follows:
- A lane width of at least 10 feet. Calculation of length shall not include any tapers and will commence when the width of the lane has reached a full 10 feet.
- A lane will only be considered if it is identified by appropriate lane striping.
- Turning and holding lanes shall not be included unless a length of such lane exceeds 200 feet.
